tees. Each church of one hundred members and^ under shall be en- 
titled to two messengers, and for each additional one hundred mem- 
bers, an additional messenger; provided, that no church shall have 
more than four messengers. 

Objects 

Article 3. Thp objects shall be to devise and reconjmend

vise the churches and rerommend measures of usefulness for their 
adoption, but cannot bind them in any way. Yet, in view of the 
combined wisdom, piety and intelligence of the body, it may justly 
claim for itself, for its objects, and for its recommendations the 
very highest consideration and regard. 

Article 5. The Association may dissolve connection with any 
church that becomes heterodox in doctrine, or disorderly in prac- 
tice, or that fails to represent itself, either by messenger or let- 
ter, more than two successive sessions, without sufficient reasons, or 
that treats with contempt its objects and requirements, upon ap- 
plication of a church for dismission. 

Rights of Churches 

Article 6. Each individual church shall hold and exercise all 
the functions of an independent church of Jesus Christ. As constit- 
uent members of this Association, the churches shall have the 
right to advise, when desired, in case of difficulty, and suggest 
plans of usefulness to be adopted. It shall be the undisputed privi- 
lege of any church to withdraw its membership from this Associa- 
tion whenever it shall so elect. 

Duties of Churches 

Article 7. It shall be the duty of the churches to appoint as

necessary expenses. 

Article 8. It shall be the duty of each church to send an an- 
nual letter to the Association giving: (1) locality; (2) names of its 
pastor and clerk and their respective postoffices; (3) the Sabbaths

baptized, received by letter, restored, dismissed, deceased, expell- 
ed and aggregate membership, male and female; (5) Sabbath School 
statistics; (6) amount contributed to benevolent objects and the As-» 
sociation fund; (7) names of messengers and alternates; (8) and 
other information of special importance. 

Organization

erator, Vice-Moderator, Clerk, Treasurer and Historian, who shall 
be elected at each annual session as the last item of business and

charge the duties of the Moderator in his absence.

ceive for his services fifty dallars out of the Minute Fund.

by the body, and make an annual report of the same. 

Article 15. It shall be the duty of the Historian, who shall be 
elected at each annual meeting of the body, to prepare for publi- 
caton in the Minutes an historical sketch of the church with which

OUR COLLEGES 

"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge,"— says the 
Lord in Hosea 4:6. How well the people of North Carolina recog- 
nize that true knowledge preserves a people from destruction may 
be seen in this year's increase of student enrollment in our fine col- 
leges. This information is based upon reports recently received from 
the presidents of our colleges. 

Wake Forest College has an enrollment of 1052 which is a 10 
per cent increase over last year. Twenty-seven states are represented 
in the student body. There are 116 ministerial students which is the 
largest number in history and' which is an 18 per cent increase over 
last year. The outstanding need of the college right now is a chapel.

West Chowan Baptist Association 



Mars Hill College has 800 enrolled v/hich is the same as last 
year because of a lack of dormitory space. A larger number of 
students have been turned away than ever in the history of the 
college. Represented in the student body are 3 foreign countries, 18 
states, 90 counties in N. C. and 58 ministerial students. Two dormi- 
tories are badly needed. 

Meredith has 561 enrolled, 15 states represented. 20 planning to 
become religious workers. The most pressing and immediate needs 
of the college are finances to finish the new plant started fifteen 
years ago. 

Campbell College has 440 enrolled which is about 10 per cent 
over last year. Ten states and Brazil are represented in the stu- 
dent body. There are 25 young men preparing for the ministry. The 
college dormitory space, a science building, an infirmary and addi- 
tional endowment are the outstanding needs. 

Chowan College has an enrollment of 90 as against 67 last 
year. There are three ministerial students. Two states represented. 
The outstanding needs are equipmnt, additional endowment.

REPORT ON THE NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

North Carolina Baptists have no institution that serves the 
people of the State more unselfishly and deviotedly than does the 
Baptist Hospital located in Winston-Salem, N. C. No better report 
can be made of this fine and helpful institution than the first article 
in the bulletin for the Enlargement Campaign entitled ''THE CRI- 
SIS" which is as follows: 

"On an average of 13 times each day, a sick or injured person 
arrives at North Carolina Baptist Hospital seeking admission. 
Emergency cases are immediately cared for, although this often 
means the shifting of patients, or the placing of beds in reception 
rooms and hallways. But only about half of the others can be a|d^ 
mitted: the rest must be denied admittance. 

"So overcrowded is North Carolina Baptist Hospital that ap- 
proximately 3,000 patients have to be turned away each year. Ex- 
tra beds are placed in every possible position, along corridors, or 
crowded into private or semi-private rooms and wards. 

"All citizens of North Carolina are concerned by this condition. 
Although the Baptist Denomination of N. C. sponsors the hospital, 
the large percentage of its patients do not belong to this denomina- 
tion. Patients come from every county in the State, often travel- 
ing great distances in the faith that they will get needed care and 
treatment. They are received regardless of creed or ability to pay. 
No applicant for admission has ever been turned away because he 
did not have the price. 

"The Christian character of the hospital will not allow it to 
choose the rich, m preference to the poor. The nurses and the in- 
ternes have no interest in knowing whether a patient is free or not. 
In this temple of healing the only questions are: "Are you in need 
of hospital care?" and "Can we find a vacant bed?" 

"But the hospital has reached a point where there isn't any more 
space in hallways or alcoves in which to crowd additional beds. In 
order to provide space for needy patients, the hospital has even 
had to move office facilities into the hallway, along with filing 
cabinets, typewriters, stenographers and clerks. 

"Make-shift expedients cannot continue indefinitely. There is 
only one remedy — the enlargement of the hospital . 

"This will require a minimum of $200,000 whch will more than 
double the hospital's capacity and enable it to adequately cooperate 
with Wake Forest College Medical School in the training of physi- 
cians to care for our people. Since the hospital serves the neeid'y re- 
gardless of creed, we will be glad for any one regardless of denom- 
ination, who cares to, to help in this enlargement, and yet, we real- 
ize, that the task is for the Baptist People of North Carolina. 

"A generous gift from the Bowman Gray Foundation to Wake 

19 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



Forest College is making- it possible for the construction and en- 
dowment of a new medical school adjoining the hospital. Thus the 
hospital will soon become a part of a great new Medical Center. 
B'ut it must be enlarged before this benefit can be passed on to 
the people. This, too, will make it unnecessary for so many of our 
North Carolina boys and girls to leave the State in order to receive 
their meidical education. Many of them establish their careers out 
of the State when they are needed at home." 

Your committee emphatically suggests that all the churches in 
the West Chowan Association observe Hospital Day on October 29. 

Respectfully Submitted,

13. C. H. Trueblood gave the report on the North Car- 
olina Baptist Orphanage. I. G. Greer, Superintendent, gave 
a forceful address on the Orphanage. 

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST ORPHANAGE 

From Matthew 20: 25-28, we read: "Jesus — said — whosoever 
will be great among you, let him be your minister; and whosoever 
will be chief among you, let him be your servant; even as the Son 
of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister and to give 
His life a ransom for many." 

Certainly there is scarcely any better way in life to achieve 
true greatness, than rendering aid to the orphan. The ministry of 
helpfulness by those '"who have," to those ''who have not," the lift- 
ing hand of service extended by the strong to the weak, is what 
Jesus characterized as true greatness. 

Regular, adequate, financial support of our orphanage is, of 
course, an ine^'capable obligation resting upon all of our churches 
and' members; however, because of our pride in, and our devotion 
for our orphanage, supporting it has come to be a heart-warming 
privilege, rather than an irksome responsibility. 

Since our orphanage was founded in 1885, more than 4,500 
children have come under its sheltering arms; and just as the orph- 
anage has blessed these children with Christian training, hundreds 
of the children have gone out to bless -the respective communities in 
which they live, with Christian service. 

The needs of the orphanage are greater than ever before, because 
the number crying for our help is larger than it ever has been be- 
fore. 

The number of children being aided by our Orphanage is 700; 
Our orphanage property is valued at approximately one and 
one half million d'oUars. 

It costs $580.00 per day to operate our orphanage (not includ- 

20 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



ing- needed repairs and improvement for buildings). A total of 
$212,000 per year is needed to feed and clothe and train these hun- 
dreds of children. 

We urge that every Sunday School in the West Chowan Asso- 
ciation send a regular liberal offering every month to our belov- 
ed orphanage; and' that every church in our Association, send, if 
possible, the largest Thanksgiving offering this year that they have 
ever sent before.

HISTORIAN'S REPORT 

History of the Baptist work in the West Chowan Association 
1939. 

While organized Baptist work in what is now called the West 
Chowan Association had its origin fifty seven years ago (1882) 
at Harrellsville, the work of Baptist churches dates back to 1729, 
two. hundred and ten years ago. The influence of this Christian 
life running through the life of the first church within its borders, 
Meherrin, and on through the life of 57 churches organized since 
then, has made this section one of the most law abiding sections 
of all North Carolina. And not only the organized church life but 
this institution, Chov/an College, our host, has contributed her 
share of Christian prin'^iples ani endowed the splendid homes with 
Christian mothers for 91 years. 

The writer of the Hymn ''Only Remembered By What We've 
Done" could not be itemized by your Historian. Only the things men- 
tioned give but a fragments ry account of what has been done dur- 
ing this past Associational year. Some of the churches are not 
mentioned in this report inasmuch as no data was secured from 
them, but it is to be hoped that they have made as good record 
as those reporting. 

In a general wsy, the churches have probably lost some en- 
thusiasm due to the present conditions brought on partially by the 
European War now in its early beginning. Contributions both to 
the local work and to Missions and Benevolences has dropped some 
because of the economic conditions. 

Thirty-four of the fifty-eight churches have given to the His- 
torian some information conceining their work. This is the largest 
number of churches giving any report of their work in several 
years. Four churches, Ahoskie, Colerain, Bethlehem and Holly 
Grove report a rotating system, of their Boards of Deacons. Practi- 
cally all the churches in the Association use the individual commun- 
ion service for the Lord's Supper. The churches for the most 

21 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



part are well organized. The Sunday Schools furnish more impetus 
for the church life than any other organization "within the church; 
lat the same time the W. M. U. and its auxiliaries add a great part 
toward the missionary program, and the Btaptist Training Union 
is rapidly taking its place in all our churches. 

There have been a few changes in pastorates iduring the year. 
Bro. John Lanier has taken up the work at Winton, Buckhorn and 
Holly Springs, left vacant by the resignation of Bro. D. J. Robin- 
son. Bro. Wallace A. Andrews came to the Ross, Greens Cross, 
Capehart and Elon Grove churches during the year. Bro. Lonnie 
Sasser changed pastorates within the Association, going from Au- 
lander to Pendleton. Bro. Andrews had been on the field only a 
short time when a very destructive tornado struck the Greens 
Cross section, demolishing about 20 homes and partially destroy- 
ing the Greens Cross Church. Bro. John Houghston is the new pastor 
at Aulander. 

Bro. Richard Lloyd of Jackson reports improvements to both 
church and parsonage at Jackson. The church furnished a room at 
Chowan College and designated it as the "Jackson Church Room." 
That church also has entered the Ministers' Retirement Plan of 
Southern Baptists. At Riverside Bro. Dixon reports the completion 
of some S. S. Class rooms. A Baptist Training Union revival was 
reported at both Colerain and Riverside, Bro. Jackson reports 
Daily Vacation Bible Schools at Christian Harbor and Harrells- 
ville with a total enrollment of 111. Bro. Brown says that at Wind- 
sor there have been over $200,00 spent for repairs on the church and 
parsonage. There have been 3 revival meetings in the church dur- 
ing the year. Dr. Potts of Elizabeth City was the guest preacher 
in the first; the Pastor, Rev, Willard Brown, the second; and Rev. 
L. R. O'Brian of Asheboro the third. All were successfully held. 

Bro. Lanier, the last addition to the preaching "staff" in the 
Association reports th.e work at Winton, Buckhorn and Holly 
Springs in a fair state of health. At Murfreesboro under the lead- 
ership of Dr. J, H. Bunn, the church has done a good deal of re- 
modeling and painting, also the debt on the church has been re- 
duced by a thousand dollars. At Conway he reports a new front 
and more partitions for Sunday School class rooms. Bro. Hollowell 
reports 62 additions on his field, composed of Republican, Merry 
Hill, Askewville and Holly Grove. One of the oldest churches in the 
Association, Sandy Run, had its building destroyed some months 
ago anid the congregation has built an adequate brick structure 
with only $1600.00 indebtedness. Ahoskie church like Windsor 
has had 3 revivals during the year. First, a S. S. revival led by 
our S. S. Secretary, L. L. Morgan of Raleigh; second an 8 day re- 
vival in which Rev. A. J. Smith of Goldsboro was the guest preach- 



22 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



er; and the third a Training Union revival led by Eev. Perry 
Crouch, sec'y of our Christian Education work in the State. Bro. 
Mustain reports $300.00 spent for painting the Mars Hill church 
and some repairs at both St. Johns and Brantleys Grove. The Severn 
church has created one new department in its S. S. and made 
provision for its physical needs. The Margarettsville church has 
beautified its lawn with evergreen shrubbery. 

The churches served by your Historian, Powellsville, Bethle- 
hem, Center [Grove and Bethany have all had good meetings 
this year with approximately 60 additions. 

Probably the most outstanding report for the churches is the 
fact that the united effotrs of the churches in Hertford County did 
more to defeat an effort on the part of the liquor forces for ABC 
stores than any other thing. And so temperance in this county pre- 
vails toiday largely because of that fact . 

Brother Trueblood reports excellent programs at Pine Forest 
and Elam. Pine Forest small numerically reported some amount 
given this year for all convention objects, something the church 
liad not done before in many years. Elam has had the best year 
during the present pastorate. There is a splendid spirit of coopera- 
tion and a gain of about twenty-five per cent in benevolences. A 
Tecent Training Union revival in the Ajssociation in which Elam 
participated resulted in the organization of four Training Unions. 

There was a call meeting of the Association last April at Chow- 
an College for the purpose of ascertaining the will of the 
churches in giving fifty percent of their undesignated gifts to 
missions direct to the support of the college. Over half of the 
churches have voted as a result of that meeting to give financial 
aid to Chowan College. 

The statistical tables recorded in the minutes of this annual 
session of the Association give in detail the additions and losses dur- 
ing the year as well as a financial report of every church. 

A committee was appointed at the last annual session to re- 
port at this session the advisability of writing a History of the 
Association for a period of at least its first half century of work.

REPORT ON CIVIC RIGHTEOUSNESS 

Although we wish it were not true, We are forced to the con- 
clusion that America, North Carolina, and even the territory em- 
braced by the West Chowan Association, is not Christian. On ev- 
ery hand we see evidences of lawlessness jmd disregard for both 
God and man. 

24 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



While we are gratified by the defeat of the liquor election in 
Hertford county, during this year, we must not for a moment 
think that this battle is over. All about us there is evidence that 
hard liquors are used more than has been true for some time. The 
only way out is through education in the churches and schools 
against the use of intoxicating beverages. 

On every hand we see signs that indicate the utter disregard 
for the Sabbath. Led by filling stations, drug stores, theatres, 
cafes, and the like, in many sections business goes on very much 
as on other days. The tragic part in this is the part played in the 
desecration of the Sabbath by our church members. Many of the 
proprietors are from our Baptist ranks, while a host of the Sunday 
customers are from our churches. There is need for us to return 
to the commandment: "Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.'^ 

In the name of revenue, various gambling devices have been 
put in most of our stores. Even without them, there is about us an 
appalling amount of gambling. Visit any fair, even to our State 
Fair and note the number of gambling dens. They are in the major- 
ity. 

All of these things about us do not call for more laws. What 
is indicated is that the people of our Baptist churches return to 
God, and continue our efforts toward a genuine revival.

STATE MISSIONS 

During the past year our State Mission Board has been help- 
ing about 160 churches in paying their pastors' salary. If this as- 
sistance should be cut off many of the pastors would have to turn 
to other sources for a livelihood, thereby making it impossible for 
many of the churches to have regular preaching service. Also our 
Board has been aiding a few churches in needy and strategic places 
with small amounts to provide better buildings and Sunday School 
equipment. It has also been carrying on the Sunday School and 
Training Union departments of our work, and has provided for 
some missionaries whose duty it is to minister to those in the San- 
itorium near Aberdeen and at Black Mountain. One of them has 
also gone to Samarcand, the school for wayward girls, one or more 
times each month. Brother Harris who has been going to Samar- 
cand reporteid to the Convention in Raleigh last year that he had 



25 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



baptized 29 of these girls on a profession of faith during the past 
year. Then the Board is ministering to the Indians of Robeson 
County through Rev. and Mrs. Lunsford; and in a small way to the 
Negroes through Rev. W. C. Somerville and J .H. Clanton. 

There are about one million people in our state who make no 
pretension at all to be Christian, and a great host of others who 
are just merely church members. This fact alone should challenge 
every Christian to a co-operative effort in evangelism, teaching and 
training.

"NORTH CAROLINA MINISTERS' RETIREMENT PLAN" 

The Convention Ministers' Retirement Plan, which is already 
in operation in South Carolina and Texas is expected to go into 
Operation during the present year in at least six other stated and 
before the beginning of the new yeai- in several more. 

This plan is the flowering forth of all previous plans and 
promises to bring adequate support for all active ministers of the 
Southern Baptist Convention. Unfortunately those who have al- 
ready retired cannot participate in the p^an — they must be aided 
from the Relief Department, but there is no reason why in the 
years to come there should be a single needy preacher in his old 
age in the Southern Baptist Convention. Surely our churches, who 
have been exempt from taxation by the Government and have 
been left free to carry on their work without interference from the 
Government, will feel that they should do voluntarily for their min- 
isters what the Government requires business organizations to do 
by law. 

This new plan is making great progress, and it has behind it 
the State Convention, the State Board and the officials of the Con- 
vention and the Boards, and this time the preachers themselves, 
for the funds they ask their churches to pay toward this plan are 
not for themselves as individuals, but for a great group of preach- 
ers who participate in the plan. It is a plan that offers a real so- 
lution of the problem of Ministerial Relief and is destined to be ac- 
cepted by every State Convention, and we trust by every church 
and minister in the Southern Daptist Convention . 

Some Principal Provision 

The pastor pays 4 per cent of his salary, the church an equiva- 
lent amount and the Convention 1 per cent — Total 9 per cent. 

Retirement Benefits \ 

Pastors entering on July 1, 1939, after one and one-half years 
of participation, and provided they are 65 or more, will receive 
benefits in accordance with the following schedule: During Cal- 

26 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



endar Year 1941 25 per cent — the percentage increasing- with each 
additional year. 

The pastor may retire at 65, but need not unless he wishes to 
do so, but so long as he remains a pastor, not retired, he, the church, 
and the Convention must continue to make payments.

REPORT ON HOME MISSIONS 

The work of the Home Mission Board is jsut as necessary to- 
day, in the bringing in of the Kingdom of God in the Homeland 
and the world, as it has ever been. In fact, the Home Mission 
task, is larger, more difficult, and more important than ever be- 
fore. 

The foreigners in our midst are a mighty challenge to our 
missionary zeal. In every state in the territory of the Southern 
Baptist Convention, there are groups of foreigners, large and 
small, who, because of racial and language barriers, are cut off 
from the ministry of our churches. They will not h^ive a chance 
to know Christ, if we do not enlarge our missionary program. 

Very few of our people fully understand the magnitude and 
importance of the foreign problem in Home Mission Fields. This 
problem may be realized, somewhat, by a consideration of the vast 
numbers of people in our midst, who are foreigners. 

The population in Home Mission Fields is divided approxi- 
mately as follows. 

1. Native white, of native white parentage, approximately 
30,000,000 people. 

2. Foreign and alien people in three groups, aggregating 
approximately 6,000,000, divided as follows: 5,000,000 foreign- 
born, 500,000 French-speaking Americans, 500,000 Spanish-speaking 
Americans. 

3. Two and one-half million in Home Mission fields, in the 
four Western Provinces of Cuba, 50,000 in the Canal Zone where 
the Home Mission Board is working. 

4. American Indians, 200,000 and Negroes, 11,000,000. 
What a tremendous mission task is ours in the homeland! The 

South, is destined to be one of the richest sections in the world. 
We must evangelize this great and growing Southern empire and 
marshal its marvelous resources, for the evangelization of the 
world.

REPORT ON FOREIGN MISSIONS 

With the rapid growth of uncertainty, fear, cruelty, and strife 
in the world, this past year has been a hectic one for the foreign 
mission enterprise of Southern Baptists. In Japan's continued war- 
fare in China, our property losses alone have reached the figure 
of at least $600,000. In Europe the story is chiefly one of persecu- 
tion, closing of churches, and putting pastors in concentration 
camps or driving them into exile. On otiher fields there are great 
obstacles also that seem to hinder the progress of our mission 
cause. 

In one sense this presents a pessimistic picture. However, in 
another sense, the outlook is exceptionally optimistic. Historically, 
Chritianity has always won its outstanding victories in times of 
great suffering and need, and this is no less true of the present. 
Our Baptist people serve the foreign fields in maintaining four 
main functions of our work: evangelism, education, medical mis- 
sions, and establishing homes for the aged, helpless, and infirm. 
Each branch of service is now taxed to more than capacity strength. 

The great social upheavals that have swept over the East, as 
well as other portions of the globe where our missionaries labor, 
have cut away many of the foundations upon which the people have 
formerly built, and have marvelously opened the minds of the hosts 
of unsaved to the treasure of the Gospel. In China especially the 
brethren seem to be experiencing a rebirth of first century Chris- 
tianity in this respect. Words of Brother H. H. McMillan are par- 
ticularly to the point here when he says, *'The storm that would 
have destroyed the churches only caused their roots to sink deep- 
er into the soil and scattered the gospel seed far and wide." 

As a result the opportunities are so great that the present 
supply of workers and money from the home land can hardly more, 
than begin to meet the demand. However, our Foreign Mission 
Board has laid new foundations and increased its effort on every 
major front in a heroic attempt to meet the situation. 

Our Southern E'.iptist people are nobly, but gradually, coming 
to the support of this work In 1938 total receipts for all purposes 
in this field amounted to $1,130,083.93. This represents an increase 
of $10,315.26 over the previous year and an increase of $249,510.22 
in the last six years. In addition, our Board received last year 
$30,298.78 from bequests. Hence it may be seen that the financial 
structure undergirding our foreign mission cause is being rebuilt. 
But this undeniable fact still remains, more challenging than ever: 
"The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few." 

Respectfully submitted, 

Millard R. Brown

Dr. Wayland Mitchell 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



DR. WAYLAND MITCHELL 

Dr. Wayland Mitchell was born in Bertie County, Sep- 
tember 9, 1871. His parents were James Washington and 
Laura Perry Mitchell. On November 23, 1898, he married 
Miss Julia Nowell, of Colerain, who died February 5, 1926. 
The Lord gave him sixty-eight useful years to live. He died 
January 1, 1940, at his home in Lewiston. 

He was graduated at Wake Forest College and the Uni- 
versity of Maryland. He also attended the University of Vir- 
ginia for one year. In the Fall of 1896 he went to Lewiston as 
a young physician and practiced medicine until the time of 
his retirement, April 17, 1914. From that time until his 
death Doctor Mitchell looked after his business interests. 

As a physician he won the love and confidence of the 
people in this section by his ability and his kindly spirit. The 
affectionate name applied to Dr. Luke of the New Testament 
may also be applied to Doctor Mitchell: "A Beloved Physi- 
cian." 

He was a tower of strength to his o^vn community, coun- 
ty, State and Nation in all matters pertaining to their spirit- 
ual, social, and economic welfare; and served in many capa- 
cities of leadership. Twice he served in the General Assem- 
bly of North Carolina, first in 1919 as representative for his 
county, and again in 1935 as senator for the district composed 
of Bertie and Northampton counties. 

During the years 1828-1931, inclusive, he was moderator 
of the West Chowan Association. For a number of years he 
held an eminent place in his local church at Lewiston. He 
was a deacon for approximately twenty years, and served as 
chairman of the board of deacons for most of that time. 

He gave liberally to all the causes of the Cooperative Pro- 
gram of Baptist work. He especially loved the Orphanage and 
supported it liberally. Ten thousand dollars of his estate were 
bequeathed to the Mills Home. Other bequests made by him 
were: $25,000 to the Department of Anatomy, School of Med- 
icine, Wake Forest College, for which he provided in his will; 
and 1 1,500 to Chowan College, given in 1928 in memory of 
his wife. He was a member of the Chowan College board of 
trustees for a number of years. 

He was devoted to his State, his community, his church, 
and his God.

and recommend measures of usefulness for their adoption, but cannot

intelligence of the body, it may justly claim for itself, for its objects, 
and for its recommendations the very highest consideration and regard. 

Article 5. The Association may dissolve connection with any 
church that becomes heterodox in doctrine, or disorderly in practice,

with contempt its objects and requirements, upon application of a 
church for dismission.

to withdraw its membership from this Association w^henever it shall 
so elect. 

Duties of Churches

5. The first subject on the program was "Ministers' Retirement 
Plan." Herbert Jenkins, Aulander, read the report and discussed the 
subject. He urged both pastors and churches to participate in the 
plan. 

Report on Ministers' Retirement Plan 

The latest plan developed by Southern Baptists designed to pro- 
vide disability and retirement annuities for pastors is the Ministers' 
Retirement Plan. The plan contemplates optional retirement of its 
members after 65 years of age with benefit payments after retirement. 

The popularity of this plan is reflected in the remarkable growth 
in its membership during the little more than two years of its opera- 
tion in the Southern Baptist Convention. Since its inauguration in 
July, 1938, its membership has grown to 4,000 with 6,000 churches in 
16 states of the Convention participating. 

Included in these figures are about 250 pastors representing 500 
churches enrolled in North Carolina. In our own association there 
are six members representing 13 churches out of a total of 58. 

Notwithstanding this phenomenal expansion, there are only about 
cne-third of the active ministers within the territory now enrolled. 
Unparallelled as has been the progress of this particular plan of se- 
curity, Southern Baptist are still far from the ideal objective of 
100% enrollment of eligible pastors and their Churches. 

We live in a day of unprecedented interest in and provision for 
the economic security of various groups of society, sponsored by the 
government and other agencies. Such provision constitutes one of the 
forward steps of the present generation, and happily Baptists have 
fallen in line with this great movement on behalf of their aged and 
disabled ministers. As Baptists, we believe in the principle of social 
security and for many years have sponsored various plans for the 
benefit of our workers, but look with traditional disfavor upon any 
governmental set-up operating in the field of religion, vv^hich we inter- 
pret as an infringement upon our religious liberty. Therefore, Bap- 
tists should unite in promoting the plan developed and administered 
by Baptists for Baptists and thereby help preserve and perpetuate the 
fundamental principle of separation of Church and State to which 
Baptists have adhered through all their long history. 

The Ministers' Retirement Plan is funded through a three-way 
source of income. Under the North Carolina plan the member con- 
tributes 4% of his annual salary, the cooperating Church 4% of its 
pastor's salary and the State Convention $18.00 per member which 
may be increased to $24.00 under certain conditions. 

This distribution of payments and contributions makes it easy for 
all the participants. Experts in the actuarial field have appraised the 
plan as safe, sound and adequate in the scope of its objective. 

In view of these most attractive features and the obvious need 
of the provisions offered to its members, we strongly commend to the 
pastors and the churches of our association their hearty endorsement 
and enthusiastic support of the Ministers Retirem.ent Plan and urge 
that a special effort be made to effectuate its purpose to provide 
economic security, after retirement, to those faithful servants of God,

the ministers, who have ever been more concerned for the promotion 
of His Kingdom in the earth than the making of money. 

HERBERT JENKINS. 


6. Mrs. J. L. Carrick, associational president, represented the 
Woman's Missionary Union. After some remarks she presented Mrs. 
W. M. Stephenson, Young People's leader, who presented a represen- 
tative from each of the junior organizations — Sunbeams, Royal Am- 
bassadors, Girls' Auxiliary, Young Woman's Auxiliary. Each one 
gave a brief message. A song was sung, "Rescue the Perishing." 

7. The Cooperative Program and State Missions were represented 
by M. O. Alexander, Raleigh. He urged the great importance of the 
word, "teach", in the Great Commission. Some discussion followed 
by Richard Lloyd, J. M. Duncan, Jno. Cale, C. G. Powell. 

8. The Foreign Mission publication. The Commission, was present- 
ed by A. M. McMillan, Richmond, Va. Envelopes were handed out 
and about forty subscriptions were taken. He pointed out some en- 
couragements in the face of world conditions. 

9. Cale K. Burgess, Raleigh, a lawyer, represented the United 
Dry Forces. He made an earnest appeal to stamp out liquors from 
North Carolina. He asked for 200,000 signers asking the next Legis- 
lature for a state-wide referendum. An offering for this cause 
amounted to $51.60. 

10. Song, "To The Work," was sung. Guy C. Moore preached the 
annual sermon. The scripture lesson, Eph. 6:10-24, was read by W. H. 
Hollo well. The text used was the theme of the session, Ezekiel 2:1 — 
"Stand upon thy feet." 

11. After an explanation by the pastor, L. Sasser, about the din- 
ner, John Cale, a former pastor in the association, led in the closing 
prayer and returned thanks for the meal. The session closed until 
1:45 P. M. 

Tuesday Afternoon 

12. The afternoon session was opened by singing "Draw Me Near- 
er" and "Wonderful Words of Life." Prayer was offered by E. H. 
Potts, Elizabeth City. 

13. The Biblical Recorder was then given more time than in many 
years before, if ever as much before. L. M. Dixon made a strong 
appeal for the denominational paper. A roll call of churches reveal- 
ed the following results.

Last year the Association voted to ask all churches to make their 
Recorder clubs expire the 31st of October and designated October as 
Recorder month. All churches were asked to renew their clubs during 
October and report the results at the meeting of the Association. Many 
churches that had old clubs reported that their work was incomplete 
and therefore they were not ready to make reports. The roll of 
churches will be called each year and it is hoped that all churches will 
soon fall in line with good clubs. 

David Morgan, Raleigh, then spoke on the Recorder. Remarks 
were made by Oscar Creech and A. M. McMillan of Richmond, Va. 
The Moderator appointed as the Biblical Recorder committee for the 
coming year L. M. Dixon, Bertie County; J. E. Lanier, Hertford 
County; E. Y. Averett, Northampton County. 

o 

Report on the Biblical Recorder 

At the meeting of the association one year ago your moderator 
appointed Rev, John Hughston of Aulander and L. M. Dixon of Cole- 
rain, as a committee on the Recorder. The purpose of this committee 
was to impress upon the minds of the people the importance of and 
necessity for reading the Biblical Recorder that we might keep up 
with, in a measure, the work of our denomination and enter into it 
more wholeheartedly. 

Your committee, with the assistance of Bro. Oscar Creech, has 
succeeded in getting a club started in thirty eight churches of the 
association, as of September 30. Some other churches have had clubs, 
but failed to renew in full. At the suggestion of Bro. Creech, John 
Hughston took Northampton county, L. M. Dixon Bertie, and Oscar 
Creech took Hertford county. Bro. Creech later reported a club in 
every church in Hertford county, however one church did not send 
its club subscribers in to the office. In Bertie county, fifteen of the 
twenty-two churches have clubs, although some that had a club did 
not renew in full. Bro. Hughston has moved away and we do not 
have a report on the work done in Northampton county. 

Recently we have sent letters to the Recorder representatives, pas- 
tors, and Sunday School superintendents of the churches, urging 
that they use their influence in trying to get the people to subscribe 
to, and read the Recorder. We hope that each messenger to the as- 
sociation will go back to his or her church and use his influence to 
get people to read this great denominational journal. What people 
read determines, in a great way, what they think; and what they 
think determines what they are, and will be. 

Respectively submitted, 
L. M. DIXON.

14. The Pvloderator called attenticn to the home-going of J. H. 
Evans of the Christian Harbor church since our last meeting, who for 
many years had been so faithful in attendance upon all our meetings. 
R. R. Jackson, his pastor, was asked to prepare a briaf obituary for 
the minutes, 

Joseph Henry Evans 

Born near Union, Hertford County, North Carolina, June 25, 1857. 
At an early age he united with the Baptist church and was interested 
in all phases of its work throughout his entire life. It was his custom 
to attend all the sessions of the association and Bertie Union Meetings. 
He held the esteem of the Brethren in both organizations, being a 
man of sound judgment and firm convictions. For many years he was 
chairman of the Board of Deacons at Christian Harbor Baptist church. 

The Baptists of this section realize a great loss in his passing. His 
death occurred at Windsor Hospital at 11:45 p. m., on March 20, 1940. 
Interred Christian Harbor Cemetery. 

R. R. JACKSON. 



15. A male quartet, J. J. Taylor, L. S. Mizelle, Jim Daniel and 
Z. W. Perry, sang "In The Beautiful Land." 

The report on "Our Colleges" was read by F. R. Johnson. Presi- 
dent J. L. Carrick gave an interesting report on Chowan College. E. 
I. Olive, new pastor at Wake Forest Baptist church, represented the 
college and made a strong appeal for the new chapel at Wake Forest 
College. He quoted President Kitchen as saying that he thought the 
college was entering the greatest year of her history. The closing ad- 
dress was delivered by C. E. Brewer, Raleigh, cn Meredith College. 
He reviewed the history of the college and gave an encouraging report. 

''Our Colleges' 

— Add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge. 11 Peter 1:5b. 

The people of North Carolina have added much knowledge to their 
virtues during the past one hundred years. The following information 
based upon reports recently received from the presidents and regis- 
trars of our colleges: 

Wake Forest Collegt has an enrollment of 1066 which is 14 more 
than last year. Twenty-five states, China, Brazil, Canal Zone, Eng- 
land, and 86 North Carolina counties are represented in the student 
body. Eighteen denominations are represented, 62% being Baptists. 
There are 112 ministerial students which is only 4 less than the record 
set last year. 77% of the student body is from North Carolina. The 
proposed chapel is the outstanding need of the college. 

Mars Hill College has 748 enrolled which is 52 less than the last 
two years because of a lack of dormitory space. A large nujnber were 
turned away who applied for admission. Represented in the student 
body are 86 counties of North Carolina, 22 states, and 55 ministerial 
students. The most urgent needs of the college are: a central dining 
hall, an enlarged library, a dormitory for young women, and a dor- 
mitory for young men. 



—21— 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



Meredith College, has 512 enrolled, 13 states and 5 foreign countries 
are represented. Nineteen are planning to become religious workers. 
The most pressing need ijs for increased financial support. For some 
years it has seemed imxpossible for the State Convention to make any 
contribution towards current operating expenses. Income from the 
endownment has shrunk for the past two years. 

Campbell College has 486 enrolled which is 46 more than last year. 
Eight states and South America are represented. North Carolina has 
53 counties represented. There are 25 men preparing for the minis- 
try. The outstanding needs are: additional dormitory space, an en- 
\ larged building, and endowment. Campbell has just received a new 
gift from the D. Rich Estate amounting to between $150,000 and $160,- 
000. This money is to be preserved as permanent endowment. With 
this and the help of the Baptists the college hopes to obtain member- 
ship in the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. 

Chowan College has enrollment of 77 which is 13 less than last 
year. There are 4 ministeral students. Three states and 10 North 
Carolina counties are represented. The outstanding need of Chowan 
College is more students and more money. 

Respectfully submitted, 

FINLEY R. JOHNSON. 



16. Miss Mittie Phelps, a school teacher for forty-one years, was 
recognized by the Moderator. 

After some brief announcements J. E. Lanier pronounced the 
benediction. The session closed until ten o'clock Wednesday morn- 
ing. 

TUESDAY MORNING 

17. The session was opened with singing "Blessed Assurance" and 
"When We Walk With The Lord." J. H. Bunn led in prayer. A very 
helpful devotional talk was made by E. Y. Averett on Psalms 121:1 — 
"I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my 
help." 

18. The report on the Baptist Hospital was read by J. Roy Par- 
: ker, Ahoskie. He introduced C. E. Parker, Winston-Salem, who was 

presented to speak cn the subject. He made an earnest appeal and

Baptist Hospital Report 

The physical plant of the North Carolina Baptist Hospital at 
Winston-Salem is now in the midst of a construction program that 
will almost double its capacity, and its usefulness. When present ad- 
ditions are completed, the capacity of the hospital will have been 
jncreased from 108 beds to 300, each equipped with the most modern 
appliances. 

Complementing the hospital enlargement program is the com- 
panion project that has taken root and is springing up on the same 
site — ^the Bowman Gray School of Medicine of Wake Forest College, 
which was made possible through the Bowman Gray estate. The 
Hospital and Medical School, while having a close cooperating rela- 
tion, will remain distinct institutions, managed by separate Boards of 
Directors. The two institutions, located on adjacent sites and both 
under the direction of the Baptists of North Carolina, will be enabled 
to provide a medical service unsurpassed in the State. 

The limitations of this report prevent the detailing of the many 
instances and examples of service to the sick and suffering the Hospi- 
tal has been enabled to perform for all classes of patients, rich and 
poor, millionaire and pauper, during the past year, as it has done in 
the other years of its existence. During 1939 the Hospital treated 
4,099, and turned away 3,000 who applied because there was "no room 
in the inn." 

Patients treated last year came from almost every county in the 
State, Because of its distance from the area embraced in this Asso- 
ciation, few of our sick are treated in the Hospital, but there is com- 



—23— 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



fort in knowing that the service may be used if other agencies closer 
home are not available. The interest in and support of the Hospital 
are in no wise diminished because of the distance removed from the 
Association. On the contrary, the churches of this Association have 
contributed freely to the financial support of the institution; and they 
are to be counted upon to continue their support, and to cooperate 
freely in the plans and ambitions of the denomination in the work of 
healing the sick. 

There is indeed cause for rejoicing over the enlarged hospital pro- 
gram at Winston-Salem, and, also because of the munificent gift of the 
Bowman Gray estate which is making possible a four-year medical 
school. Yet, this report cannot be ended without its author giving 
expression to his fervent and prayerful hope, that the Baptists of our 
Assooiation may be so aroused to the need for the bodily healing of 
the sick that they may lend their support, financial and moral, and 
their intelligent direction, to the building and maintaining of more 
hospital beds within the borders of this association — an area so 
woefully lacking in this ^essentially Christian service.

19. The hour for the Baptist Orphanage arrived. J. C. Hough, 
Superintendent of the Kennedy Home, Kinston, was recognized and 
he explained that on account of school two small children would 
sing instead of the chorus as on the program. Mrs. Hough accom- 
panied while little Shirley Hartley and Lee Otis Daniel, two children 
from the Home, sang "Jesus Loves Me" and "God Bless America." 
The singing was much to the delight of the congregation. H. P. Ste- 
phenson, Severn, read the report. Superintendent Hough spoke on 
the Orphanage, particularly the Kennedy Home. He was heard with 
much interest. A senior from the Home, Hazel Bishop, sang beauti- 
fully a solo. It was a good presentation of the Orphanage work. 

North Carolina Baptist Orphanage 

From Matthew 19: 14, we read: "But Jesus said, Suffer little chil- 
dren, and forbid them not, to come unto me; for of such is the king- 
dom of heaven." 

The children who compose the population of the Baptist Orphan- 
age of North Carolina may be classified under three heads: full or- 
phans, half orphans and victims of desertion and wrecked homes. 
These children are being cared for by three well organized methods of 
child caring agencies: Mothers Aid, Boarding homes and the Or- 
phanage proper. In addition to these our case workers are rendering 
a fine service by helping children and parents make adjustments with 
their neighbors and relatives. 

The demands upon the Orphange authorities have never been 
greater. They receive upon an average forty-five applications every 
month during the year. No matter how urgent the demand, however 
the policy of the Orphanage leaders is not to make special appeals 
direct to the churches. Special appeals for other causes may come 
and special appeals may go, but this constant stream of human want 



—24— 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



must go on day after day and year after year until the purpose of 
Christ through His church has been fulfilled. 

The past year was one of the best in the history of the Orphanage, 
but imperitative needs continue to increase. The care of the orphan 
child was intrusted to us by Christ himself. We cannot shun this 
Christian responsibility and claim to be practising "pure religion." 
When appeals are made to Orphange authorities they have no- 
where to go, indeed, they do not want any place to go for financial 
support other than individuals, Sunday schools and the churches. 

Since our Orphanage was founded in 1885, nearly 5000 children 
have come under its sheltering wings, and these children have been 
blessed with Christian training, hundreds of the children have gone 
cut to bless the respective localities in which they live, with Chris- 
tian service. 

We urge that every Sunday school in the West Chowan Asso- 
ciation send a liberal offering every month to our beloved Orphanage, 
that a special appeal be made by the churches for a real offering on 
Thanksgiving and a club of Charity and Children for each Sunday 
£;chool. In order that this may be done, we recommend that an Or- 
phanage representative be appointed by this body to contact every 
Sunday school and church in the association. "Inasmuch as ye have 
done it unto the least of these, ye have done it unto me."

Historian's Report 

West Chowan Baptist A-ssociation meeting with the Connaritsa 
Baptist church, Bertie County, in annual session, October 29-30, 1940. 

Since the beginning of the associational year October 1, 1939, to 
the present day Baptists along with fellow Christians the World over 
have witnessed the greatest conflict between Democracy and Totali- 
tarianism in the history of civilization. This great conflict centered 
in Europe and Asia is spreading with such rapidity that our own coun- 
try is arming itself against any possible invasion by any foreign power. 

Surely such a war raging across the Atlantic and Pacific is having 
Its effect upon every Christian and every church in our own country. 
Just whether this effect will have a tendency to unite Christians in a 



—26— 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



greater effort to supress evil or bring about a racral laxness which saps 
the spiritual development of Christians remains to be seen. The 
Christians in our churches "as good soldiers" have ?. wonderful oppor- 
tunity to bring Peace to the world through the Prince of Peace. 

Sixteen churches in our association have stood for more than a 
century along with forty-two others organized less than 100 years 
ago as lighthouses of Truth and Righteousness in their respective com- 
munities. These sixteen churches which have celebrated their 100th 
Anniversary are in the order of their organization: Sandy Run, Cashie, 
Colerain, Connaritsa, Republican, Ahoskie, Ross, Holly Grove, Pote- 
casi, Mt. Carmel, Capeharts, Bethlehem, Buckhorn, Pleasant Grove, 
and Mt. Tabor. Meherrin, the Mother Church of these churches has 
reached the 211th birthday. 

At the close of the association year all the churches were being 
5-erved by regular pastors. While not all the churches sent some 
item of historical interest to the historian for this report, all the 
churches are in a very good state of growth. 

Brother A. P. Mustian, pastor of the Mars Hill church, reports 
their church building lost by fire on the 26th day of June, 1940. They 
have already begun to rebuild on the old site. St. John's and Brant- 
ley's Grove, both under the leadership of Brother Mustian, have had 
on a program of renovation. The Lewiston Church, while not lost by 
any forces of destruction, has built a new modern brick church house 
c-'nd is worshipping in it. It is all complete except the central heat- 
ing plant and all bills have been paid, according to the pastor, Guy 
C. Moore. A Baptist Training Union was organized in the church 
last June with fifty m.embers. Also a B. T. U. at Kelford was or- 
ganized in June. 

Brother Millard R. Brown, pastor of the Cashie Church, reports 
several things undertaken during the year. The associational year 
was started with an evangelistic meeting which has proved its worth 
during the year. Stewardship and B. T. U. meetings were conducted 
with benefit to the church. The Sunday School also conducted a 
Daily Vocation Bible School. The W. M. U. had a very good year. 
One hundred and fifty-five dollars were spent on church repair. The 
Recorder club has reached 36 in the church. Over at Murfreesboro 
and Conway where Rev. John H. Bunn is pastor comes this report: Rest 
rooms completed at Murfreesboro, concrete ficor for the basement of 
church, new piano for basement auditorium, and a new $1,000.00 
heating plant installed. At Conway, a new table for the observance of 
the Lord's supper, with two chairs to match, and a new carpet for the 
vestibule. 

Brother R. R. Jackson at Harrellsville reports that the brethren 
have put a new roof on the parsonage; a communion table at Har- 
rellsville, a memorial to Mrs. Millie Askew. Revivals at Harrellsville, 
Christian Harbor, Hebron and Menola were stimulating. The Daily 
Vacation Bible Schools were well attended. Brother E. Y. Averitt, 
the new pastor at Severn, Potecasi, and Margarettsville reports the 
v/ork in fine condition. The church at Severn completely renovated 
the parsonage for their paster. The pastor did his own preaching in 
the revivals. A Vacation Bible School was held at Severn. The 
W. M. U. raised over $300.00 during the year. The work at Potecasi 
is going forward. The church is making an effort to pay off the 
church debt. At Margarettsville plans are underway for finishing the 
interior of the churcli. A small but well organized membership is 
loyal to the pastor in his efforts there.

Holly Grove and Sandy Run, under the leadership of Brother 
Harold White recently ordained by the Windsor Church are doing 
very good work. According to Brother Richard Lloyd of Jackson the 
Jackson church is expecting to carry out an expensive repair and 
general renovation program next spring. The work at both Jackson 
and Mt. Carmel is making progress. Brother John E. Lanier reports 
that the Buckhorn Church has iRstalled an electric lightmg system, 
eight additions to the church by baptism and an increasing interest 
on the part of the young people. Brother Lanier held his own meet- 
ing at Holly Springs and baptized seven as a result of the meeting. 
At Winton, where the pastor lives, the church shows many signs of 
growth: a Vacation Bible School, six additions by baptism, a substan- 
tial reduction on the church debt. Also a Recorder Club in every 
church on the field. 

Brother J. F. Stegall was called to the Rich Square and Woodland 
churches and took up his work with them cn April first. The Rich 
Square church was host to the Regional B. T. U. convention in March 
and the Northampton County W. M. U. in April. All departments of 
the church are either fully graded or striving to that end. A fine 
spirit prevails at Woodland with its departments of work cooperating 
to make the whole efficient. Dr. J. L. Carrick, pastor of Mt. TabOx" 
Church and the latest one to celebrate its centennial (1939) reports 
nme Sunday School class rooms built, the church painted in.3ide and 
out, and a steady spiritual growth. 

Six young men were ordained to the gospel ministry during the 
year: Norman L. Blythe, Christian Harbor; Clarence E. Godwin, 
Center Grove; Harold White, Windsor; and Claude Roebuck, Union; 
C. Bailey Jones, Roberts Chapel; Robert Forbes, Union. 

The following is a brief summary of the churches served by the 
historian: Po wells ville — repair to the interior of the parsonage, in- 
cluding rewiring the house; first Daily Vacation Bible School in the 
history of the church; 119 enrolled with an average attendance of 113; 
Bethany — new tin roof on church; Center Grove — Bertie Union Meet- 
mg held Friday before the fifth Sunday in September. Good revivals 
held in each church — 29 received for baptism.

o 

History Connaritsa Church 

The Connaritsa Baptist Church was constituted in the year 1787. 
It is located in the county of Bertie, four miles south of Aulander, on 
the State Highway leading from Aulander to Windsor. 

The Clerk has a record of all proceedings from July 20, 1851, to 
the present time. In the year 1851 there was a total membership of 
257, consisting of 62 white male members, 140 white female members, 
19 colored male members and 36 colored female members. Rev. 
Harvey J. White was pastor and George Williford was clerk. 

In June, 1852, Wiley Dunning became pastor and served until 
December, 1852, being succeeded by Rev. Thomas Hoggard who re- 
mained pastor until 1854. He was succeeded by Rev. Everett Hancock, 
v;ho served the church until October, 1855. At this time the Rev. 
Stephen Bazemore and Edward Pierce served the church jointly as 



—28— 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



pastors until the year 1858. Rev. Thomas Hoggard was then elected 
pastor and A. J. Dunning, church clerk. Brother Hoggard remained 
pastor for seventeen years, being succeeded by Elder Jeremiah Bunch 
in January, 1875. Brother Bunch served until 1887. He was followed 
by Elder T. T. Speight, of Republican, who served until December, 
1910, a period of 23 years. During the time Dr. Speight was pastor 
323 members were added by baptism. 

In January, 1900, Brother A. J. Dunning was succeeded by Brother 
John P. Slade as church clerk. Brother Slade served in this capacity 
for 40 years and at his death he was succeeded by Brother Raleigh 
Pritchard who is the present clerk. 

Upon the retirement of Dr. Speight as pastor in 1910, the church 
secured the services of Professor J. E. Hoyle, principal of Aulander 
High School, who served as pastor until September, 1912. Rev. R. L. 
Gay of Aulander then served as pastor until the June meeting of 1913. 
He was followed by Rev. M. P. Davis who remained until March 1918. 
At that time the church was fortunate in securing the services of Rev. 
James Long, a most wonderful pastor who remained until October, 
1920. Rev. F. B. Raymond succeded Brother Long and served as pas- 
tor until December 1921. Then Rev. J. F. Cale of Roxobel served as 
pastor until December 1923. The next pastor was Rev. E. W. Mason oi 
Edenton, who remained with us until October 1925, when Rev. J. L, 
Powers became pastor. Brother Powers made a wonderful pastor, 93 
members having been added by baptism during his mxinistry here. 
Not only did blessings come to the church through his ministry but 
through the Christian leadership of his wife, Mrs. Powers, who served 
our church organization in a most effective way. 

Brother Powers served the church until 1934 and Rev. Lonnie 
Sasser followed. This pastor has continued until the present time. 
Through his wonderful work there have been many members added 
to the church making a total membership of 475. 

From the year of 1789 until 1889 the building consisted of only 
one room. In the year 1889 some repair work was done making 
ready for the Centennial Service. In the year 1900, the church was 
rebuilt with an addition of two new rooms. During the past eleven 
years, further improvements have been made, having now an audi- 
torium and six class rooms. The house is constructed of wood and 
has many memorial windows. The seating capacity is about 800 and 
the value of the church property is $7000.00. 

These few lines express the spirit of the church: 

"There is no greater name in the community than Connaritsa. 
Time takes its toll and the viccissitudes of life pass like shadows be- 
fore us but being true to our faith we press onward. And not only for 
past blessings are we thankful, but for future joys we are hopeful for 
great are the wonders and the power of God." 

At the meeting of the Association in 1939, it was decided to have 
the history of the Association written. (See page 30, section 29.) The 
Moderator appointed Oscar Creech, chairman, of a committee to 
write the history, with the understanding that he would appoint two 
others later. Early in this year he appointed K. E. Bryant and Billie 
Raynor of Powellsville as the other members of the committee.

28. In the absence of G. T. Britt, President of the Training Union, 
L. M. Dixon spoke briefly on the importance of the training work- 

29. Sunday school work was discussed by R. R. Jackson, Super- 
intendent. L. M. Dixon gave a report of a thriving mission Sunday 
school of Colerain, the only one in the Association. 

30. Mrs. W. H. Taylor read the State Mission report in the ab- 
sence of Mrs. H. K. Harris, who prepared the report. 

State Missions 

In fulfilling the Great Commission and in assuming as a beginning 
point in missionary endeavor our own State, North Carolina Baptists 
have translated the vision of their responsibility by a continued effort 
to bring the whole constituency of our State, all races and classes of 
people, into the Kingdom, of God- Rev. and Mrs. M. C. Lunsford, mis- 
Fionaries to the Indians of Robeson County, report enlistment and en- 
largement in their work. Through Rev. W. C. Somerville and Rev. 
J. H. Blanton, a constructive Christian co-operative program among 
the Negroes is giving large rewards, as they seek to build into the 
Negro life of the State Christian ideals. 

Two general missionaries. Rev. M. O. Alexander and Rev. J. C. 
Pipes, are promoting evangelism, stewardship training, missions, and 
pastors' retreats and conferences in the churches of the State, seeking 
to bring the people to acknowledge and demonstrate the Lordship of 
Jesus. Seventy-eight miissionary pastors work in about 154 churches, 
holding revivals, conducting training classes, promoting church and 
mission literature. Money is supplied by the State Board for build- 
ing, repairs, and upkeep of many churches, as well as aid for pastors 
where the people are unable to provide a living income for them. 

The State Board provides a missionary. Rev- E. M. Harris, to work 
with the 170 or more girls at Samarcand. Although the amount of 
money expended is small, there have been satisfactory results of this 
ministry; 22 girls were baptized in 1939. At our State Sanatorium at 
Aberdeen and Western North Carolina Sanatorium at Black Mountain, 
Rev. E. M. Harris and Rev. Guy Marlowe make regular visits to the 
patients, distribute literature, and preach the gospel there. At Oteen, 
Rev. W. Wayne Williams ministers to the needs of the men of Baptist 
faith and tries through his church to help the wives and children of 
the ex-soldiers. Most of the work in prison camps is done voluntarii}^ 
by pastors, though they report an increasing need for developing this 
service. 

The Department of Christian Education, through the Sunday school 
division, the B. T. U., and the closely allied W. M. U. has made pro- 
gress in uplifting mission wnrk- Through Christian colleges our young 
people are being utilized in the plans for the extension of the Kingdom. 
Baptist Students Unions and B. S. U. secretaries are being maintained 
in a few colleges, but the need for an expanding program is reported. 

In all these activities the State Board has one fundamental pur- 
pose in view, to make Christ known and regnant in the lives of North 
Carolina Baptists. 

Respectfully submitted, 

BERNICE KELLY HARRIS.

31. The Home Mission report was made by W. O. Andrews, 
Home Missions 

"Ye shall be witnesses unto me ... in Samaria." Acts. 1:8 are the 
Lord's last words to His apostle followers before His ascension into 
Glory. This is indeed both a command and a challenge in this our day- 

Our Southern homeland is our Samaria. The greatest problem of 
our present civilization and the world is our problem, namely: de- 
throning self and enthroning Christ as Lord and King of our lives. 
We can never win victories in the far-away lands if Christ does not 
conquer in the homeland. We must let Christ be Master and triumph- 
ant at home if He is to be triumphant abroad. 

The Home Mission Board is sincerely and earnestly seeking to en- 
throne Christ in the hearts of our fair southland. 

The Board is striving to heed the Biblical injunction to make and 
baptize disciples among the Indians, the foreigners, the Negroes, in 
the congested areas and in Cuba and Panama. 

The Lord richly blessed every field of activity last year. There 
are now 411 missionaries working in 863 mission stations. Forty new 
missionaries were added last year; 93 new mission stations also added 
and 14 pieces of property acquired; 40,362 Bibles, testaments and 
portions of scripture, and 660,847 tracts were distributed. 

There were 34,008 sermons preached; over 9000 professions were 
made and 4,672 received into the fellowship with the churches. 

From a financial standpoint, the receipts last year were the best 
for many years and much larger than the year before. In 1939, the 
Board received from all sources $544,289.04. The debt was sub- 
stantially decreased. $159,585.15 were paid on the principal. A debt- 
paying program will provide or assure a debtless Board by 1945; pro- 
vided that, the receipts do not fall below the 1939 level- Let us all 
strive to help make this possible. 

There are 269 missionaries under the direction of Dr. J. W. Beagle, 
field secretary in the department of Missions. This marks an in- 
crease of 17 over last year, which indicates great progress. 

In Cuba, progress has been made, nev/ fields entered, and general 
activities enlarged under the capable leadership of Dr. M. N. McCall. 

Dr. Roland Q. Leavell, the superintendent of Evangelism, devotes 
much time to the organization and promotion of simultaneous evan- 
gelistic campaigns. 

With the rapid growth of the population, especially urban, there 
arc more unsaved souls in the southland today than when the Board 
was organized in 1845. This should challenge each and all of us to 
support this work in a sacrificial manner. 

From the Rev. Jacob Gartenhaus comes this growing report of his 
most successful year among his Jewish friends. Great numbers have 
turned to Christ- 

Dr. Nobel Y. Beall reports that more than 9,000 Negro students 
were enrolled and activities directed by his staff of 21 teacher-mis- 
sionaries. 

A very readable, interesting magazine is published and offered by 
the Board at a very nominal subscription fee of 25 cents per year of 
12 copies, concerning Home Missions in our Southland. 431,600 copies 
were circulated last year. 

Every home should not be without this magazine, "Southern Bap- 
tist Home Missions." Let us subscribe so that we may be informed 



—31—

and inspired to support our missionaries among the spiritually needy 
folks of our southland.

32. A solo, "Why Should He Love Me So?" was sung by Mr. 
Parker, superintendent of Aulander High School. Richard Lloyd 
gave the report on Foreign Missions because of the sickness of Mrs. 
Sallie Parker. 

Foreign Missions 

The report on Foreign Missions a year ago to this body spoke of 
the uncertainty, fear, cruelty and strife among the nations and the 
consequent reflex influence on our Christian enterprise abroad. The 
fear, cruelty and strife have intensified and the uncertainty of a 
year ago has become more and more a certainty. 

This certainty is that Christianity's advance movemient (Foreign 
Missions) is being attacked at its center, its right and left flanks, and 
it is a stern reality that any view of the Christian enterprise abroad 
will be that our backs are to the wall. In a brief time (five years) 
the nationalism of Japan has attacked the center of the Foreign Mis- 
sion movement, China- The millions of dollars and years of effort 
spent are being nullified. Her rigid restrictions on Christian mis- 
sions in Japan and the conquered portions of China limit our wcrk 
to the strictest non-religious cirriculum in all schools, colleges and 
any humanitarian work such as medical missions must be non-reli- 
gious. 

To the north, on our left flank, in the European countries we find 
ourselves under the pressure of a dominating material paganism and 
what is claimed to be the mighte.st Christian force (The Roman 
Catholic church) powerless and just tolerated. 

On our right flank, on the south, we have Christianity's greatest 
rival, Mohammedanism, watching the so-called Christian or as they 
regard us "infldel nations" at each other's throat. This power is 
recognized in the fact that the present slack in the Battle of Egypt is 
due to Mohammedian religoius festivals that end next Tuesday and 
neither Italy nor Britain dare run counter to these religious observan- 
ces. 

The other two continents with their teeming millions, Africa and 
India, are more or less spectators of the strange sight of Christians 
doing each other to death. 

In the past fourteen months practically all support of the Foreign 
Mission enterprise that came from the protestant denominations of 
Europe has vanished and their mission stations, work and mission- 
aries are stranded, helpless and penniless. The British Baptists have 
had their splendid new headquarters building in London destroyed 
by German bombers. The concentration on the defense of their own 
homes leaves them helpless to carry on their mission enterprise. 

The Christian denominations of the U. S. A. have practically the 
whole line of Foreign Missions to maintain and defend. Who else is 
able to do it? The Baptists of the South have responded well to the 
call of British Baptists to assume some financial responsibility for

their Foreign Mission work. 

We are sure that the Wast Chowan Association will rally to this 
enlarged call, for practically all Foreign Missions of the protestant 
Christian churches must be carried on by the Christian people of this 
country; and we will do it.

West Chowan Baptist Association 



BERTIE UNION MEETING 
Organized Prior to 1803 

1. At the meeting of the Bertie Union on Friday, September 27, 
1940, at Center Grove Baptist church it was decided to ask the West 
Chowan Association for some space in the Minutes each year, one to 
two pages, for a brief record of what is done at the meetings. The two 
bodies are now identical in territory and are composed of the same 
churches. 

2. The Bertie Union Meeting of Baptist churches is at least eighty 
years older than the Association, but as no records have been print- 
ed, little is known of the long history. The Union is to bear the ex- 
pense of printing at the rate of $2,50 per page. 

3. Two meetings of the Bertie Union have been held this year, 
1940. The spring meeting day was used for the Sunday School Con- 
vention and Training Union Convention. 

4. MEETING AT PLEASANT GROVE BAPTIST CHURCH, 
March 29, 1940. 

B, D. Stephenson, Pendleton, was moderator, W. J. Beale, Jackson, 
clerk and L. J. Godwin, song leader. 

The following program was given: Devotional period, K. E. Bryant; 
"Is There Danger of a Baptist Dictatorship?" W. H. Hollowell; "Is 
There Danger of Our Churches Becoming Mere Collection Agencies?" 
C. H. Trueblood; "Is There Danger in The Emphasis for the Far 
Distant Responsibilities?" L. M. Dixon; sermon, W. O. Andrews. 

In the afternoon a devotional period was led by A. P. Mustain; "Is 
There Danger in The Standardizing of Our Baptist Church Life?" R. 
R. Jackson; "Is There Danger in The Present Organization Emphasis?" 
J. W. Hughston. Richard Lloyd, Lonnie Sasser, B. L. Davis, program 
committee. 

5. MEETING AT CENTER GROVE BAPTIST CHURCH, Sep- 
tember 27, 1940.

Lord God of Israel" — 2 Chronicles 29:10. 

1. The West Chowan Baptist Association convened in the fifty- 
ninth annual session with Chowan College, Murfreesboro, on Tuesday, 
October 28, at 9:45 A. M. 

2. With G. C. Moore leading the singing, this first meeting 
was opened by singing "All Hail, the Power of Jesus Name" and 
"Break Thou the Bread of Life". Mr. Moore then read Gal. 6:1-10 and 
led in prayer. The Moderator, W. D. Barbee, then called to order the 
Association, and the order of service was adopted. The chair appointed 
E. W. Whitley, Murfreesboro, Finance Committee; Richard Lloyd, J. E. 
Daniels and H. P. Stephenson the Committee on Time, Place and 
Preacher.

the Hospital, then spoke to the report. 



Report on Baptist Hospital 

The Baptist Hospital is just now completing additions to its plant 
that increases its bed capacity from 108 to 300. This will enable the 
hospital to treat 10,000 patients each year. Of this number, we may 
expect 3,300 of them will be service patients, that is not able to pay 
a hospital bill; 3,3 00 will be mothers who have waiting for their 
return home 10,000 children. If the present rate is maintained, 200 
will be preachers from whom no charge has been made for the last 
two years or more. 

The Hospital has a staff of 100 doctors; these are all specialists 
in the many fields of medicine and surgery. 

The hospital runs a well-equipped standard Training School for 
Nurses. These are taken from as nearly every section of the state 
as possible. A cless of about 50 will be taken each year, making a 
school of 150. 

The Medical Building of the Bowman Gray School of Medicine 
of Wake Forest is now completed and the school opened the first of 
September of this year. While the Medical School and the Hospital 
will be closely related and mutually helpful in every department, 
they will remain seperate institutions, controlled by seperate Boards 
of Directors and supported from different sources. 

Everything contributed to the hospital goes to the support of the 
hospital exclusively. The Mother's Day Offering by the churches is 
used exclusively for the patients not financially able to pay for treat- 
ment. 



—15— 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



The spiritual side of the hospital's service is stressed always. 
The Hospital has a fulltime pastor supplied by the generous donation 
of Mr. C. M. Scott of High Point. This pastor, Rev Charles E. Parker, 
in addition to his many activities with the patients and their families 
and friends, teaches a course in Bible in the Nurses' Training School. 

The various organizations of our women and young people are 
rendering a vast service to the hospital in supplying linens of all kinds 
such as sheets, pillow cases, towels, washcloths, etc. 

Our vastly enlarged program of course will require increased 
support. 

Respectfully submitted, 

LONNIE SASSER 

11. C. G. Powell read his report on "Minister's Retirement." 
"CARE THROUGH MINISTERS' RETIREMENT" 

The Ministers' and Church Employees' Retirement Plan for 
pastors and full time church employees is in its second year of ope- 
ration in North Carolina. 

The whole plan is merely a common sense way of creating a Tund 
in advance so that when a pastor becomes disabled or reaches the re- 
tirement age, which is sixty-five, he may retire knowing that an an- 
nuity has been built up for him. The plan is not so much designed to 
lay up money for a rainy day as it is to lay up something against 
that certain day that every man and woman must come to, the age 
of sixty-f i\ e, or retirement age. 

It only remains for pastors and churches to take advantage of 
this remarkably fine opportunity now offered. It is really the first 
time Baptists have undertaken to meet in an adequate way the situ- 
ation of caring for our aged ministers. 

Surely the young minister should join the plan as soon as he 
takes up his first pastoral activities. If he joins promptly it assures 
that his annuity shall not be reduced by delayed participation. There 
can be little doubt that when a pastor protects himself against depen- 
dency, his mind will be freed from many anxities, and he will there- 
fore be enabled to do greater work for the Lord. 

The obedient but stern old prophet was yonder by the Brook 
Cheri'h (1 Kings 17: 1-16). Twice daily the ravens brought him 
bread and flesli, and he drank from the brook. But alas, a devas- 
tating drought began to encompass the land, and the brook dried up. 
The bewildered but faithful prophet wondered. The Lord sent Elijah 
to Zerephath, assuring him that a widow there had been commanded 
to sustain him. When Elijah found this widow, he learned that she 
had only an handful of meal in a barrell and a little oil in the cruse. 
A poor widow! A meal barrell nearly empty! Should she not receive 
help rather than be commanded to help others? But the Lord had 
promised "the barrell of meal shall not waste. . . " On being assured 
of the Lord s will in the matter, the noble widow graciously agreed 
to share the little she had. And God blessed her to the extent that 
not only did she have enough for herself and son, but some to spare 
for the prophet of God. Thus we see that God cares for his prophets. 

The New Testament is also very definite in its teachings on the 



—16— 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



subject of providing for God's prophets. First Corinthians 9:14 
reads: "Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the 
gospel shall live of the gospel." or as Goodspead puts it: "In just the 
same way the Lord directed that those who preach the good news 
should get their living from it." It would seem therefore that in both 
the Old and New Testaments it is God's plan for his prophets to get 
their living from "the Gospel." 

Now, if the Lord has ordained that ministers surrender their 
all to the gospel, and likewise get all their living from the gospel, 
should not we Baptists he willing to obey without further argument, 
and see to it that the Ministers' Retirement Plan is carried out in 
every Church within the bounds of the West Chowan Association? 

July 1, 1941, about 325 pastors and employees had become mem- 
bers. January 1911, a few pastors of sixty-five years! of age and be- 
yond, retired, and are now receiving monthly annuity income. 

May the Lord help us to strengthen the stakes and lengthen the 
cords that we may more adequately care for our aged ministers. 

Respectfully submitted. 
C. G. POWELL 

12. The report on the Orphanage was read by E. Y, Averitt and 
John Arch McMillan, Editor of Charity and Children, sPoke to the 
report. He urged the importance of helping poor people. 



REPORT ON THE BAPTIST ORPHANAGE OF NORTH CAROLINA 

In this report it is impossible to record the stories of physical, 
social and spiritual needs that are being made daily in the office oi 
the Baptist Orphanage. It is the responsibility of Orphanage officials, 
in the final analysis, to try to translate appeals into action. Only those 
who must listen to these stories of human need and deal with these 
problems first hand know what sympathy, long suffering, patience 
and good judgement this requires. 

There are three classes of children now being cared for by the 
Orphanage, full orphans, half orphans, and victims of wrecked homes. 
This service is being rendered through Mother's Aid, boarding homes 
and the Orphanage proper. In addition to this the Orphanage auth- 
orities are rendering a fine service by helping children and parents 
make adjustment^.- with neighbors and relatives. 

In spite of the fact that the government has entered thel field of 
child welfare in a large way, the demands upon the Orphanage auth- 
orities have never been greater. They receive upon the average forty 
five applications every month during the year. No matter how urgent 
the demands, however, the policy of the Orphanage is not to make 
special appeals. The average cost of running the Orphanage is ap- 
proximately $5 00.00 a day. The fifty nine Sunday Schools in the West 
Chowan Association gave from October first 19 40 to October first 
1941 the amount of $6,-322.97 an increase of $76.42 over the same 
period last year. In other words our Association kept the Orphanage 



—17— 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



open approximately 12 days this past associational year. Can't we ao 
better than that? 

We recommend that this association name an Orphanage repre- 
sentative who will see that a representative is named in every Sunday 
school to keep this worthy need before the people once a month and at 
Thanksgiving. 

We pray to our Heavenly Father, "Give us this day our daily 
bread." The only way He can give the children their daily bread is 
through us. Let each of us as a Christian pledge here and now that 
our Sunday school will help answer this prayer.

13. After announcements the afternoon session came to a close. 
The benediction v/as given by E. Y. Averitt. Thus ended the first day 
with about 550 in attendance. 

WEDNESDAY MORNING 

13. At ten o'clock the session was opened by singing "When 
I Survey the Wondrous Cross" and "Jesus Shall Reign". C. H. True- 
blood read Romans 10:1-15, and led in prayer, 

14. The mission report was read by W. H. Hollowell. Mrs. W. 
E. White spoke for the Woman's Missionary Union. As the American 
Bible Society is a great aid to world missionaries, M. R. Brown spoke 
for the society and urged support for it. Dr Chas. E. Maddrey, Sec- 
retary of the Foreign Mission Board, gave a dark picture of world 
conditions. An offering was taken for China relief, and amounted to 
$113.52, which was turned over to Dr. Maddrey. 

Mission Report 

The final command of our Lord to His followers was, "Go ye into 
all' the world and make diciples of all nations." To define more spe- 
cifically the scope of our labors Luke in Acts 1:^ divided the field of 
missionary activity into four divisions: "Ye shall be witnesses unto 
me both in Jerusalem (the local community), in all Judea ((State 
Missions), in Samaria (Home Missions), and unto the uttermost 
part of the earth (Foreign Missions)." 

STATE MISSIONS 

The ministry of our State Board divides itself into the following 
channels of service: 

1. Evangelism. This is an immense and needy field for there are 
in round numbers a million people in our state who profess not 
Christ as Saviour, to say nothing of the multitudes whose religion 
ends with profession only. 

2. Establishing and supporting churches. At present our Board 
is helping to pay the salaries of 160 missionary pastors. In a small 



—18 — 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



way it aides in building and repairing church houses in needy places. 

3. There is also the ministry of church development. In this 
field our Board has two general missionaries, M. O. Alexander and 
J. C. Pipes. In this branch of our work there is included our Sun- 
day School, B. T. U., Sturent work and Schools for pastors. 

4. Ministry to other races, principally Negroes and Indians. 

5. Ministry to the sick at Oteen, Western North Carolina San- 
atorium and State Sanatorium. 

6. Ministry to the wayward at Samarcand and East Carolina 
Training School at Rocky Mount. At present our Board is spending 
no money in providing a ministry to those confined in the penal 
institutions of our state. 

To the above has been added a newer field of labor. We face the 
opportunity and responsibility of work in the areas near the military 
camps and in the near-by cities to which the soldiers go for recreation 
during their leisure hours. Truly "The whole world lies in the power 
of the evil one." The forces of evil are seizing every opportunity 
which they can grasp to corrupt the morals of our soldier boys and 
to attract them away from sacred things and righteous living. It re- 
mains to be seen what we as Christians shall do to aid them in 
acquiring a closer fellowship with God. 

The calls are many, opportunities are multiplying. WSiat shall 
we as Baptists do about it? 

HOME MISSIONS 

The next step in our missionary program as outlined by Luke and 
practiced by Southern Baptists is "in Samaria", or what we choose to 
call Home Missions. 

Our Christ for our country should be the ambition of every 
Christian of every denomination in America. The approach to world 
missions lies in christianizing and utilizing our forces at home. To 
this task has our Home Mission Board set its hand. 

The 19 41 report of the Home Mission Board reveals marked pro- 
gress on every field. Total receipts for the year were more than 
$560,000. The most marked achievement financially has been the re- 
financing of the Board's debt of $850,000, effecting a saving of 
$9,000 a year in interest. The report shows 391 missionaries employed 
with 5,375 professions of faith, 915 churches and mission stations, 71 
new mission stations opened, and 14 new pieces of property acquired. 

Superintendent M. N. McCall reports 15 additional workers on 
the Cuban field and 2 61 baptisms. Dr. J. W. Beagle, field secretary, 
reports 2 60 workers in the department of missions in the homeland. 
Thirty new missionaries were added, and there were 2,468 baptisms. 
According to Dr. Roland Q. Leavell, superintendent of evangelism, 
approximately a quarter of a million have been won to Christ in the 
past year making our church membership more than 5,000,000. Rev. 
Jacob Gartenhaus says that in his twentieth year with the Home 
Mission Board he has witnessed the greatest awakening on the part 
of the Jews for Christ. They are demanding a more intelligent pre- 



— 19 —

sentation of the Gospel through the printed page. 

There has been an extensive distribution of Home Mission litera- 
ture including nearly 600,000 copies of Southern Baptist Home 
Missions, 62, 220 books and multiplied thousands of tracts. Mrs. Una 
Roberts Lawrence has published two new mission study books, The 
Trail of Seed and Signs of the Times. 

The Home Mission Board has an exceptionally important role to 
play in the work of spiritual ministry to the men serving in our 
national defense. Dr. Noble Y. Beall, the Board's contact man in the 
army camps, says, "This defense program has brought on a crisis which 
if not successfully met will bring consequences that will affect or- 
ganized religion in ways which will prove to be most disastrous." 

FOREIGN MISSIONS 

The last step in our missioary program is "unto the uttermost 
part of the earth", Foreign Missions. 

The report of our Foreign Mission Board proclaims the year just 
closed to be the best in its long history of 9 6 years, in spite of the 
war. Through its 45 7 active missionaries and the nearly 3,000 native 
workers the Board has been doing the work of teaching, preaching, 
and healing in 16 countries of Africa, Asia, Europe and; South Ameri- 
ca. The membership of the churches was increased by 18,542 bap- 
tisms, and they contributed a total of $379,896. 

Vitally related to the achievements of our Board are the women 
of our convention. Year by year their Lottie Moon gifts have in- 
creased until last year they reached the unprecedented height oi 
$363,743.30. 

While our Foreign Mission work has been vitally affected in some 
countries by the war, other fields are affording us still greater oppor- 
tunities. Unprecedented opportunities in Africa knock at our doors. 
The work in Nigeria has expanded to such extent that it has over- 
flowed into neighboring colonies. Recently a group in the Gold Coast 
appealed to the Nigerian Baptist Convention for missionary leader- 
ship. The heathen king, who waited hours to lay the needs of his 
pagan people upon Dr. Maddry's heart is still waiting to have his 
desires fulfilled. Others, indeed multitudes, are sitting in darkness 
waiting. It is generally conceded that there are no more fruitful 
mission fields than those that lie to the south of us. Dr. S. L. Watson 
writes, "As a field for missionary opportunities Brazil is unsurpassed." 
Similar statements might be made about the other Latin American 
republics. 

The indebtness of thgi Board has been reduced under its present 
secretary. Dr. Chas E. Maddry, from $1,110,000 to $205,000. It is 
expected that the Board will be a debtless institution by 1945, when 
it observes its 100th anniversary. 

Doubtless one of the great needs of our Baptist people is infor- 
mation relative to fields, opportunities and accomplishments. To fill 
this need is the Commission, our Board's magazine. It is hoped that 
pastors and other religious leaders will make an effort to get this 
magazine into every Baptist home.

15. L. M. Dixon represented Religious Literature and spoke 
especially for the Recorder. He recommended that the name of the 
Recorder representative be put in the church letter if it could be ar- 
ranged. 

16. "Training in the Church-Sunday School and Training 
Union" was discussed by R. R. Jackson. 

17. The report on "Religeous Training in the School" was 
read by J. E. Lanier. H. Hadden Dudley gave his first address as 
president of Chcwan College. Dean D. B. Bryan of Wake Forest 
College spoke on "Christian Education". 

RELIGIOUS TRAINING IN THE SCHOOLS 

To-day great emphasis is placed on training. The call is for 
trained men and women. Our Christian schools are to give a definate 
type of training, that of christian training or education. 

The Christian view of education looks beyond the student to 
his relations in the world. Its objective is the service of man-kind. 
Suc!h training as this is an outstanding need of our time. Our' schools 
were established to provide training under and in a christian atmos- 
phere. The subjects of Mathematice, Science, Philosophy, History, 
Literature, etc. when present with the christian objective or pur- 
pose will strengthen the religious conviction of the students. 

In our system of schools, we have in our state two senior colleges 
and five junior colleges. 

Wake Forest College is our oldest senior college. Until recently 
it was conducted strictly as a college for men now women are 
admitted to the rights and, privileges of the institution. For the pre- 
sent school year the enrolment has gone some beyond the 1,000 mark. 
The one outstanding need at Wake Forest College is a chapel and 
equipment for religious training. The original plan of building for 
this purpose has been changed and the present plan in to erect two 
buildings. One for a college chapel and one as religious education 
building. It is hoped to begin the construction of these buildings at 
an early date. We urge the churches and individuals to contribute 
liberally to this worthy and needy cause. 

Meredith College is our senior college for women. We under- 
stand the enrolment of students this year is not quite up to last 
year. There are several new faculty members this year. A very high 
type of work is done by this institution. Religious training is given 
special emphasis. 

Mars Hill, our largest Junior college, has enrolled 8 59 for this 
year. A new building has been completed and is in use. The freshman 
class is the largest of any of our schools. 

Campbell Junior College had a splendid opening. The present 
enrolment is larger than at the same time a year ago. Some donations 
have been received during the year. One of the most urgent needs 
is two new domitories. An effort is being made to increase the en- 
dowment to $200,000. 

Chowan Junior College has opened up under new management 
and a new faculty in all departments. Dr. H. H. Dudley, the new 



— 21 — 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



president, has started his administration pleasing to all connected 
with the institution. Considerable improvements have been made to 
the physical plant. All things bid fair for this to be a good year for 
the college. 

Our two other Junior Colleges, Wingate and Boiling Springs, 
had good openings for this year. Both of these schools are operating 
under more favorable conditions than they did some years ago. 

Each one of these institutions has urgent needs which we will 
not attempt to enumerate in this report. "We hope that in the near 
future our convention will be in a position to adequately care for all 
our schools.

"Before the World-The Christian Walk". "Things Forbidden" 
was discussed by Richard Lloyd; and "Things Commanded" by W. 
P. Milne. 

21. The Historian, K. E. Bryant read his report: 



HISTORIAN'S REPORT 

The churches are so busy making history that they do not have 
time to write about their progress. At least your Historian has been 
able to hear from a very limited number of the churches after an 
urgent request to report. The church at Severn, reports Brother E. Y. 
Averitt the pastor, has made some progress during the year. Gifts to 
both local expense and missions have increased over the previous year. 
Also some improvements have been made to the building and its 
surroundings. Potecasi under the same leadership reports increases to 
all causes. There has beeiv good attendance at the services. A fund to 
install a heating plant has been started. The West Chowan Associa- 
tional W. M. U. held its annual meeting with the Potecasi church 
during the year. At the Margarettsville church gifts to the coopera- 
tive program have increased. A coat of paint was also put on the 
church house roof. 

Brother M. R. Brown, pastor of the Cashie church, reports the 
following: 'We had, beginning the year, revival meeting with Dr. 
Sankey Blanton of Wilmington as preacher. The meeting was quite 
successful. Later we had a Stewardship meeting with Brother M. O. 
Alexander as speaker and leader. Then later in the fall we held 
a very successful school of Missions with classes for all ages. During 



— 22 — 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



the year $251.68 v^orth of repair work was done on the church and 
parsonage. The vfork has gone forward making gains in all depart- 
ments. The cooperation of the people through the year was splendid.' 

Brother Guy C. Moore of Lewiston reports the installation of a 
heating plant in the- Lewiston Church, 

The Republican field of which Brother W. H. Hollowell is pastor, 
makes the following report: Askewville. repaired and painted inside 
walls of auditorium; Merry Hill, covered auditorium; Republican, 
painted floors, built new flues and painted outside of building. 

The church at Mars Hill was burned a little over a year ago. 
However, there stands on the site of the old church a modern brick 
building with adequate Sunday school facilities. This church has been 
erected by the whole-hearted cooperation of the membership without 
debt. They have worshipped in the school building during the con- 
struction of the new church, but hope to be able to get into the new 
building around the first of the year. Brother A. P. Mustian is the 
pastor of this fine rural church community. He also states that the 
St. John's church building has been wired for electricity and that the 
folks are enjoying their new lights. 

Brother Richard Lloyd, pastor of the churches comprising 
Jackson Field, has this to say about his work; At Jackson the church 
building has been thouroughly repaired and painted inside and out- 
side at the cost of $1,082.00. This amount has all been paid. In the re- 
vival meeting Dr. Hugh A. Ellis of Wilson stirred the church with his 
fine preaching and left a very good impression on the people. Mount 
Carmel installed electric lights in June, the result; of the REA, They 
did other necessary repairs all of which have been paid for. The 
church experienced an unusual meeting during the year, having for 
the visiting minister a son of the church, converted forty years ago 
in that church, Dr. Kelly White of Nashville, Tenn. Dr. White re- 
lated his conversion to the church and some of his experiences since 
then. The attendance was unusually large from the very beginning. 
There were 8 for baptism. 

Your historian would like to say that; the work on his field has 
in many respects gone forward. Good meetings were held with 2 6 
for baptism and several by letter. The Bethany church has paid for 
a new roof on their church house. Center Grove has begun installing 
new pews at a cost of approximately $1,500. 

During the year five pastors have moved to other associations: W. 
O. Andrews to Robersonville, J. H. Bunn to Morehead City, J. L. 
Carrick to Whaleyville, Va., J. F. Stegall to Jonesboro and Harold 
White to Richmond University. 

Two pastors have come to us: W. P. Milne, Aulander and Paul B. 
Nickens, Murfreesboro.

28. The following resolution by Richard Lloyd was adopted: 
"We, the members of the West Chowan Association assembled at 

Chowan College in the 1941 session, offer our thanks and appreciation 
to the President; faculty and students for all their efforts to make 
this session as successful as it has been." 

29. Oscar Creech, the Clerk, suggested that there was danger 
in loosing the great interest in the annual meetings by meeting too 
often with the college. These two meetings with the college have 
shown that people do not attend as they do when the meetings are 
in the churches. It is hoped that our churches in the future will see 
that there is a meeting place each year in some church. 

30. "Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow" was sung and 
W. P. Milne pronounced the benediction. 

Thus closed the fifty-ninth annual session of the West Chowan 
Association. The attendance was considerably off the two days; first 
day about 550 and second day 250.

died in a year was 15 4 in 19 30; the smallest number is 10 3 this 
year, which is 3 4 less than last. 

30ME OBSERVATIONS: (1) In gifts most of the churches 
have made good gains. This is as it should be in view of the better 
financial condition of the country. (2) In some ways the churches 
continue the toboggan slide in baptisms, S. S. enrolment and atten- 
dance, and in Training Union work. (3) The churches that have no 
Sunday school. Training Union, nor W. M. U. Organizations constitute 
■opportunities for the near-by churches. (4) The West Chowan is 
the fifth largest in the State. (5) Our churches will soon be out of 
debt. It may be well to get out as soon as possible and stay out, 
pay-as-you-go. 

PRAYER: Lord, send us a brother whose soul is on fire from 
heaven to set the West Chowan on fire as did Lemuel Burkett the 
Kehukee in 18 01, when he reported that 60 00 had been converted 
and baptised in eight months in Kentucky. Amen.

CONSTITUTION 

NAME 

Article 1. This body shall be known as the North Carolina West 
Chov/an Baptist Association. 

MEMBERSHIP 

Article 2. It shall be composed of messengers elected by the 
churches connected with this body and all ordained ministers who are 
members or pastors of said churches, together with the officers of this 
Association, and chairmen of all standing committees. Each church of 
one hundred members and under shall be entitled to two messengers, 
and for each additional one hundred members, an additional mes- 
senger; provided that no church shall have more than four messengers. 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



OBJECTS 

Article 3. The?' object shall be to devise and recommend measures 
for increasing the harmony, the intelligence and spiritual power of the 
churches, and for developing and directing their energies, their re- 
sources and their gifts, in advancing the Redeemer's Kingdom on 
earth. 

POWERS AND PREROGATIVES 

Article 4. The Association shall have no power to infringe upon 
the sovereignty or rights of the churches. It is neither an ecclesiastical 
nor legislative council, nor court of appeal. It may advise the churches 
and recommend measures of usefulness for their adoption, but cannot 
bind them in any way. Yet, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and

SIXTIETH ANNUAL SESSION 

— of the — 

WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

— ^held with — 

CHOWAN COLLEGE 
October 27, 1942 



MORNING SESSION 

The-me: "By their fruits ye shall know them." 

1. The West Chowan Baptist Association convened in the 
sixtieth annual session with Chowan College, Murfree-sboro, on Tue- 
sday, October 27, 1942, at 9:45 A. M. 

2. B. R. Stewart led the devotional p&riod. The opening hymn 
was "Take My Life And Let It Be Consecrated, Lord To The-e." Prayer 
by Mr. Stewart and then he read some* verses from John 14 and Mat- 
thew 7. R. R. Jackson led in prayer. 

3. W. D. Barbee, Moderator, the-n called the session to order 
for business. The Order of Business was presented by the« Clerk sug- 
gesting that one change be made, that the Orphanage be placed at 
1:40 instead of 3:20 to accommodate Mr. Greer from the Orphanage, 
and that all subjects following be- moved back thirty minutes. 

4. The Clerk explained that because of the tire and gasoline rat- 
ioning the Executive Committee of the Association decided that we 
would have one day instead of two as usual; and that in order to cut 
the business to one day it would be necessary to receive reports with- 
out reading them. 

5. Richard Lloyd was asked to serve as a committe on e'U- 
roUment. 

6. Sunday School work was presented by the General Superin- 
tendent, R. R. Jackson. His report was not at all encouraging as both 
enrollment and attendance were lower than the year before. He 
reported, however, that every church now had a school. 

7. After singing 'Love Divine All Love Excelling" J. E. Lanier 
read his report on the Biblical Recorder and then spoke on his report. 

REPORT ON THE BIBLICAL RECORDER 

The Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, organized in 18 30, 
has as its purpose according to the constitution, the promotion of 
Missions, Education, Social Service, and the distribution of the Bible 
and sound religious literature. It was not an accident that the Biblical 
Recorder was founded in 18 33. The founding fathers realized that 



—13— 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



the people did not, and could not, advance beyond the information 
which they had. That was true then and is equally true" today. A study 
of the minutes of the convention will show that almost without ex- 
ception there is a direct relationship between the number of Recorder 
subscribers in any church and the support which that church gives to 
missions, education and benevolences. 

Moreover, it is quite certain that young people, and older people 
as well, in Baptist homes are reading something. The important ques- 
tion is this; what are- they reading? We cannot know exactly, but we 
do know enough to declare that if we could know the facts we would 
be greatly disturbed, unless we have- grown so callous that nothing can 
distrub us. There are in North Carolina about 100,000 Baptist famlies; 
and the pity of it is that perhaps 90,000 of these families never see 
a copy of their Baptist paper. With this condition, how can we ex- 
pect the people to be interested in the great program which Baptist 
undertake to promote. 

In addition to information about Baptist work the Recorder 
carries each week significant articles which deal with the great 
issues of life which all people must face. 

For this convention year the paper has been published by an 
acting editor. Rev. Eugene I. Olive, pastor of Wake Forest church 
and college. Rece-ntly the Recorder Board of directors secured a full 
time editor, Dr. L. L. Carpenter. We speak for him the cooperation 
of our people that the paper may be of greater service and reach the 
largest number of the denomination's constituancy in all of its history. 

We urge our pastors and leaders in our churches to see that more 
of our people take and read the paper. We commend the club plan 
of subscription to all our churches. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN B. LANIER 

8. As the program was running ahead of time the Moderator 
appointed some committees: 

Finance, G. D. Leggett, Windsor 

Time, Place- and Preacher: C. G. Powell, Ahoskie; Hersey Miller, 
Mars Hill; B. L. Sykes, Jackson. 

9. Mrs. W. E. Wlhite, Associational President of the Woman's 
Missionary Union, made a splendid report on their work. She explained 
that "Personal Service" had be-en changed to "Community Missions". 

10. The. report on Missions was written by Mrs. Sallie Parker. 
After leading in prayer she spoke most convincingly on her subject, 
showing the urgent need of missions today. 

MISSION REPORT 

The report of the Mission Program of our churches is being writ- 
ten this year a: a time when many difficulties beset us and many 
obstacles are to be overcome; but in an hour of such need for the 
Gospel of our Christ that the very urgency of the situation "Bids nor 
sit nor stand but go!" Dr. Jesse Wilson of the A. B. M. Board writing 
in the Commission says, "This is not the time to do less. It is the 
time to do more. Doing more in the war effort is the only thing that 
will win the war. Doing more, infinitely more, now and in the years 
ahead in the name of Christ and the Church is the only thing that 
will insure the peace and welfare of mankind." Many fields are still 
open to us. Dr. Maddrey says we have an opportunity and challenge 



— 14 — 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



in Nigeria sucli as we have not had in the ninety years since Bowen 
began our work in the Darli Continent. The doors swing wide in 
^l:iatin America. "New work has been opened in Colombia. The mission- 
.aries are still in Free- China, and others are only awaiting the day 
of peace to return to their stations. The Great Commission has never 
b&en revoked and there can be no morotorium on our obligations 
to the Kingdom, of our Lord Christ. We have only to be faithful in 
prayer, service and gifts "till the morn breaks and the shadows flee 
away." 

Dr. J. B. Hipps formerly of the University of Shanghai is quoted 
as saying in a recent speech, "We must save America if we would 
win China. The Missionary's work can never rise above the level of 
the spirituality of the churches at home." We would do well to give 
the more earnest heed to this plea from a faithful missionary. Many 
problems here at home cry aloud for a Christian solution. The pro- 
gram of the Home Mission Board has its objective the strengthening 
of America through a revitalized Christianity in the churches of 
the Southland. Our Secretary, Dr. J. B. Lawrence, declares "Nothing 
will so serve the interest of the world to day and so strengthen the 
Gospel in all the earth as a great spiritual revival in America. Mis- 
sions in the homeland is essential and imperative." Conversely, the 
neglect of, or indifference to the Missionary program of the Church 
would be the greatest tragedy that could happen to Southern Bap- 
tists and our Country. "Pray ye therefore the Lord of the Harvest 
that He send forth laborers into His harve-st." 

"He hath sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call re- 
treat, He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment seat. 
Oh! be swift my soul to answer Him, be jubilant my feet. 

Our God is marching on." 

Respectfully submitted, 

SALLIE C. PARKER 

11. Represe-nting the State Mission Board M. O. Alexander em- 
phasized the importance of Teaching as given us in the Great Com- 
mission. He showed bow we are failing to teach our people. 

12. New pastors were recognized and the Moderator asked the 
Cle-rk to introduce them: Wade Baker, Rich Square and Woodland; 
D. E. Bobbitt, Colerain and Riverside; C. P. Cleveland, Roberts Cha- 
pel, (P. O., Newsomes, Va.), E. R. Stewart, Greens Cross field; J. U. 
Teague, Powellsville field; W. E. Woodall, Cashie (Windsor). Th© 
Moderator recognized M. O. Alexander from our State Mission Board, 
Raleigh; and I. G. Greer, General Superintendent of our Baptist 
Orphanage. 

13. The Moderator called the Association to prayer for our 
men and women in service and asked Oscar Creech to lead the 
prayer, 

14. After singing "O Jesus, I Have Promised" E. Y. Averett read 
Mark 12:2 8-3 4 and then preached the annual sermon, using as his 
subject, "Living In The Suburbs of The Kingdom." 

15. President Dudley made announcement about the dinner 
and Lonnie Sasser closed the morning session with prayer.

AFTERNOON SESSION 

16. Praise service was led by L. J. Godwin. "Majestic Sweet- 
ness" and "Stand Up, Stand Up For Jesus" were sung. Prayer by P. 

B. Nickens and another song was sung, "Onward, Christian Sold- 
iers". 

17. The Orphanage report was presented by P. B. Nickens. 

REPORT OF THE ORPHANAGE 

Jesus once said "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the 
least of these, My brethren, ye have done it unto Me." We, in the 
West Chowan Association, believe that included among "the least 
of these" are the orphans of our State. Believing thus we are try- 
ing to do something toward meeting the needs of those who are less 
fortunate than we. 

In the past assooiational year we gave to the Orphanage 
$7,7 8 5.70. This is an increase of $1,329.05 over the preceding 
associational year. This is a commendable increase, but there is 
still room for improvement. Some churches as yet do not give re- 
gularly. This failure to give regularly should be corrected by the 
Pastors and Sunday school superintendents of these churches im- 
mediately. In the associational year that is now ahead let's make 
our association one that is one hundred percent in regular giving 
to the Orphanage. Every church is especially requested not only 
to make the regular Thanksgiving offering, but also to see that 
once a month an offering is sent to our Baptist Orphanage. Do not 
allow cn© child to go undernourished or improperly clothed or 
inadequately trained because you failed to give. 

Respectfully submitted, 

PAUL B. NICKENS 

18. I. G. Greer, representing the Orphanage, spoke on the 
liquor question. He showed how the Orphanage is very sadly af- 
fected by liquor. He said that 140 Orphanage boys are now in 
the Service of our Nation. 

19. A collection was taken for the United Dry Forces which 
amounted to $61.00 

20 As the appointee to represent the Baptist Training Union 
was not present the Moderator made appointments for next year; 

Biblical Recorder, D. E. Bobbitt, Colerain. 

Orphanage, E. R. Stewart, Windsor. 

Missions, Wade Baker, Rich Square. 

Education, C. P. Cle-veland, Newsomes, Va. 

Chowan College, H. Haddon Dudley, Murfreesboro. 

Hospital, A. P. Mustian, Colerain, 

Ministers' Retirement, W. F. Woodall, Windsor. 

Civic Righteousne-ss, Richard Lloyd, Jackson. 

Order of Business, Oscar Creech, Lonnie Sasser, W. H. Hol- 
lowell. 

21. President Dudley made brief remarks about Chowan College 
and presented J. Mayon Parker, President of the Board of Trustees, 
who presented the plain facts as to the financial standing of the col- 
lege. Mr. Dudley then spoke briefly on christian education. 

22. The Baptist Hospital at Winston-Salem was represented by 

C. E. Parker, pastor of the Hospital. 

2 3. F. R. Johnson read his report on Ministers' Retirement with- 
out comments.

West Chowan Baptist Association 



REPORT ON MINISTERS' RETIREMENT 

A few de'cades ago^ social security, as it is now known, was con- 
sidered to be a minor part of civilization. Today, over sixty nations 
have already entered the social security field. This phenomenal de- 
velopment has not been brought about by the will of man. Rathe-r it 
is a result of social and economic changes which have made it diffi- 
cult, and in some case« impossible, for our elderly people to earn a 
livelihood. 

During the first twenty-four years of its life and work the Re- 
lief and Annuity Board has made a great record of service and growth. 
Its assets grew from a little over $100,000 at the end of its first year 
of operation to approximately five and a half million dollars by the 
end of 1941. Its income during 1941 was $1,147,678.84, while its ex- 
penditures in Relief and Annuity benefits amounted to more than 
one-half million dollars. The Board is serving more than 10,000 min- 
isters, missionares, denominational workers and widows of ministers. 
Two thousand five hundred of these are already receiving benefits and 
the other 7,500 are due to receive benefits in the years ahead. 

Approximately 8,000 churches and 6,000 preachers are partici- 
pating in the Ministers Retirement Plan. This number represents 44 
per cent of the eligible pastors and by May 1943 the Board is confi- 
dent that 65 per cent, or between 7,000 and 8,000 preachers will be 
paying dues. Among 18 states and the District of Columbia, North 
Carolina ranks 14th. in number of enlistments in the plan. Maryland 
leads with 8 7 per cent, South Carolina 86 per cent, North Carolina 
41 per cent, and Kentucky is last with 2 6 per cent enlisted. 

It is a state unit plan and yet it is a Southern Baptist plan. It is 
operated by the Relief and Annuity Board for each state. The dues 
for North Carolina are 4 per cent of the minister's salary payable 
monthly and 4 per cent additional paid by the church or churches 
he serves with the State Convention paying $18.00 per member. 
After the plan has been in operation twelve years a retired minister 
will receive 50 per cent of his average salary received during the 
past 25 years. 

North Carolina has issued 38 6 certificates for the plan. At pre»- 
sent there are 2 62 paid up to date, with some 85 additional in fair 
standing. Some few have dropped out or moved to other states. 
Since January 1 of this year 30 new members have been enrolled. 
Only 18 have, retired, while about double that number are eligible. 
There are four receiving disability benefits. 

Below is a financial statement as of December 31, 1941: 



Income 1940-41. 

Payments by Members $34,791.15 

Church and Convention...'. 43,062.31

28. Dr. C. G. Powell made a motion that we go on record as an 
Association favoring th© passage of a law that will prohibit the sale of 
wine and beer on Sunday in the three counties embraced in our asso- 
ciation. The vote was by rising and unanimous in favor of the motion. 
While we are petitioning for a law against the sale of only wine and 
beer on Sundays it is definitely understood that we are opposed to the 
sale of any and all intoxicating liquors within the bounds of our Asso- 
ciation, State and Nation. 

29. The Historian, E. Y. Averett, read his report: 

HISTORIAN'S REPORT 
World history is in the« making and as world history is being 
made many of the fine things of our world are being destroyed. Bap- 
tist history is being made and a part of this Baptist history is being 

—18 — 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



made he-re in our beloved West Chowan Association. When we think 
of Baptist history we immediately think of Baptist principles, such as 
separation of church and state, freedom of thought, and pure demo- 
cracy. Let us pray that as we have enjoyed anotheii great year in our 
association that we have stood firmly for these great Baptist prin- 
cipals. 

In the very first of this report we want to pay tribute to Bro. 
K. E. Bryant who served so faithfully and so well as our association- 
al historian. We miss him in this capacity as in many other places. He 
moved to Pittsboro after serving the Powellsville field for about twel- 
ve years. 

There has been several changes in the roster of our pastors since 
our last annual meeting. The following have enlisted in the armed 
services of our country as Chaplains. Rev. W. P. Milne, Rev. Millard 
Brown. Brother Milne was pastor at Aulander and Brother Brown at 
Windsor. The following have changed pastorates, Bro. K. E. Bryant, 
Bro. L. M. Dixon, and Bro. Guy Moore has gone to study at our Sem- 
inary in Louisville. 

We are happy to welcome the following new pastors to our Asso- 
ciation: Bro. Wade Baker at Rich Square, Bro. David Bobbit at Coler- 
ain, Bro. J. U. Teague at Powellsville, Bro. E. R. Stewart at Greens 
Cross, and Bro. W. E. Woodall at Windsor, Bro Curtis Cleveland of 
Newsomes, Va. is also pastor at Roberts Chapel. 

Your historian has received very limited information regarding 
the work in the seperate churches. We are sure however that many 
worthy things have been accomplished. Fine reports have come in re- 
garding the response in our revival meetings. Brother Creech pastor 
at Ahoskie reports a great victory when the entire indebtedness on 
the church was paid in September. We rejoice with him and his fine 
people. Bro. A. P. Mustain pastor of the church at Mars Hill reports 
their debt paid. We are happy with him and his people in building and 
paying for this new church house since the other building was destroy- 
ed by fire. The church at Conway, Bro. Sasser pastor, has made im- 
provements in their church building. The building has been ceiled and 
painted inside and out. The work on the Severn field includes the chur- 
ches at Severn, Potecasi and Margarettsville has been very encouraging 
to the pastor. A new garage and woodshed have been built at the par- 
sonage at Severn, the church debt at Potecasi has been decreased and 
we are hoping to curtail it greatly this fall; the church house at Mar- 
garettsville has been plastered which is a great improvement. Each of 
these churches has increased in local gifts, pastors salary, and a mark- 
ed increase to Missions. 

The Center Grove Baptist Church dedicated their new building 
on Sunday, June 14,1942. They had an all-day service with dinner on 
the grounds. 

We sincerely and prayerfully thank God for his blessings in the 
past year< and trust we shall be worthy of such ble-ssings in this year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
E. Y. Averett, Historian 

28. The following resolution by H. Haddon Dudley was adopted 
by rising vote: Resolved that we, the Wfest Chowan Baptist Associa- 
tion of North Carolina, embracing three counties-Bertie, Hertford and 
Northampton, with fifty-eight churches having a membership of 15, 
42 6 go on record as opposing the sale of all intoxicating liquors in and

around all camps where our boys are in the service. 

That copies of this resolution be sent to our President, Members 
of Congress and the Governor of our state. 

2 9 A vote of thanks was given Chowan College for the enter- 
tainment during the day. 

30. Officers for the next year were elected:

PROCEEDINGS 

— af the — 

SIXTY-FIRST ANNUAL SESSION 

— of the — 

WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

— held with — 

MARS HILL BAPTIST CHURCH 

(BERTIE COUNTY) 

October 26, 1943 



MORNING SESSION 

Theme: "Witness after power is received." 

1. The West Chowan Baptist Association convened in the sixty- 
first annual session with Mars Hill Baptist Church, Bertie County, on 
Tuesday, October 26, 1943, at 9:4 5. 

2. After singing "All Hail The Power of Jesus' Name", W. B. Har- 
rington, Williamston, led the devotional period. He read Acts 1:1-11- 
He emphasized the importance of having power and how to get that 
power. After he led in prayer "My Jesus I Love Thee", was sung. 

3. The Moderator called the body to order. The program was 
adopted giving ten minutes to missionary J. J. Johnson, of the Foreign 
Mission Board to talk on foreign relief. 

4. The American Bible Society was represented by J. B. Folds, Au- 
lander, who urged more support for this' great society. 

5. L. S. Mizelle read the report prepared by his pastor, W. F. 
Woodall of Windsor, who was unable to be present, on Ministers' Re- 
tirement. 

MINISTERS' RETIREMENT PLAN 

The Re'lief and Annuity Board has been in operation for 25 years. 
The total assets of the Board at the end of March of this year was 
$6,166,766.37. 

The Board has a number of plans. North Carolina has one of these. 
In our Southern Convention, more than ten thousand Churches and 
more than seven thousand preachers are participating in one or more 
of the Board's plans. 

The North Carolina plan has been in operation since January 1, 
19 40. The maximum dues for North Carolina are 4 per cent of the 



14 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



minister's salary and 4 per cent additional paid by the church or 
churches he serves, with the State Convention paying $18.00 pe-r mem- 
ber annually. After the plan has been in ope-ration 15 years, a retir- 
ing minister will receive 5 per cent of his average, salary of the years 
of his partcipation, provided he entered the. plan at his first oppor- 
tunity and has had 2 5 years of service. 

During July of this year a change in the original certificate was 
made, providing "that a pastor having more than one church may par- 
ticipate in the plan even though only one of his churches may agree 
to participate-. He cannot, however, advance the money for a non- 
participating church and is, therefore, permitted to pay on the salary 
he receives from the church, or churche-s, participating. 

Since the first of this year 5 or more pastors have entered the 
plan. We have now approximately 450 members. April 30 of this 
ye.ar 4 9 per cent of the pastors of our state had entered the plan. 

In our Association, eleven of our pastors, about 50 per cent of them, 
have entered the plan. Out of our 5 8 churcnes, 21 have- entered. This 
year our churches have contributed ':|5S5.36 to the Ministers' Re-tire- 
ment. This is a gain of 2 4 per cent over the previous year. 

This report reveals the enthtusiastic reception of the Ministers' Re- 
tirement Plan by many preachers. At the same time, it shows clearly 
the enlistment work yet to be accomplished. May the goal of our 
Association be "Every Baptist Church cooperating in the Ministers'" 
Retire-ment Plan and every Baptist pastor a member." 

Submitted by

intetresting*, report of the work during the past year. 

REPORT 

This report of the Woman's Missionary Union of the West Chowan 
is made today when it is indeed a dark and difficult period in Mission- 
ary e-ndeavor. Though dark the hours, the work marches on. It was 
a dark day in the history of the world wnen Mary and "Certain 
Women" were made the- first publishers of the "Glad Tidings.' A cruel, 
unscrupulous tyrant was on the throne, surrounded and protected by 
an army of Roman soldiers. The disciples frightened, discouraged, 
denying and betraying, had^ forsaken Jesus and fled. A small group of 
loving, praying women went weeping, discouraged and heartsick; they 
returned happy, rejoicing. They went seeking their Christ, they found 
Him alive. He gave them the message, "Go tell" — 

On that first Easter morning, Christ was seeking some one on whom 
He could depend to heed His call. Today He is still seeking those "cer- 
tain woman" who will proclaim the tidings. As on that first morn- 
ing, our women of the West Chowan have been happily and joyfully 
proclaiming the message that Jesus lives and is the Saviour of the 
world. 

There has been a fine increase in our gifts to Missions of $4,286.15 
or 31 per cent. Total gifts to Missions was $18,093.67. We were ask- 
ed to give for 1943, $1750.00 to the 100,000 Club. We have given 
thru September 30th, over $2300.00, and yet have three more months 
to go. 

We desire to hetlp in the building of a great spiritual reserve of 
funds and workers, that our present fields may be well supplied, and 
as the popular song goes,, "Whe«n the Lights Come on Again All Over 
The World" we can be ready to send workers with food for the needy 
bodies and souls of people throughout the wordl; that all the world 
may know that Christ is Lord of all. 

We earnestly beg every man in our Association and every unenlist- 
ed woman to join us in giving systematically to the. great Mission pro- 
gram of our Lord. 

MRS. W. E. WHITE, 
Superintendent W. M. U. of West Chowan. 

11. Dr. Carpenter having arrived spoke for the Biblical Recorder. 
He gave an interesting report and said that the circulation was the 
largest it had ever been; that last Friday, October 2 2, the number of 
subscribers was 19,13 5. He reported that the We'St Chowan Associa- 
tion had 37 clubs out of 58 churches. Song, "My Faith Looks up to 
Thee." 

12. The report of Missions was read by J. Wade Baker, after 



16 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



which Secretary M. A. Huggins spoke. He gave a very encouraging I 
report of the work in our state. 

MISSION REPORT 

The Gospel command, "Go ye. into all the world," is being carried 
forward even in these days of adversity. Because of the continued 
world conflict, many mission stations remain closed in areas directly 
affected. But in the economy of the Mission Program a degree of 
compensation is realized in that increased effort is being put forth in 
other fields. The ravages of the war that have temporarily closed the 
work in some places have created new demands in other fields and 
situations. One added demand is that of relief of human suffering in 
war torn areas. And Christians of the Baptist Denomination, in their 
response to the World Emergency Relief Fund, show that they are not 
unmindful of this need. 

Southern Baptists are greatly heartened with the thought that in the 
near future the denomination will be free of debt. With the Foreign 
and Home Missions Board free of indebtedness, there remains only 
about $300,000 of the once $7,000,000 Convention debt. The near re- 
moval of this debt has been made possible by constant and sacrificial 
given, and its final payment portends greater fields in mission work. 

While the last chapter of our Baptist Mission work was being 
written, the West Chowan Association was writing a substantial para- 
graph of that chapter. The report for this past year is gratifying. Of 
the fifty-eight churches in the Association, all contributed to the Co- 
operative Program except one; all but eight to State Missions; all but 
fifteen to Home Missions; and all but ten to Foreign Missions. All 
churches contributed to Missions and Be-nevolences. The total amount 
given by the Association for Missions and Benevolences is $49,796.58. 
This amount is $14,290.91 above that reported for the preceding year. 
Although added financial demands are made upon people in these 
days, the increase in contributions to the Mission Program is indica- 
tive of the spirit of Christ active today in the hearts of his followers. 

It becomes increasingly evident that the extent and quality of mis- 
sion work in these crucial days will in a great measure determine the 
progress and response to mission work in the post-war years. Two 
reasons are given here why we must maintain a strong Mission move- 
ment. 1. There is a greater knowledge of the needs of people through- 
out the world than ever before. Maps in the daily newspaper, pictures, 
news reporters, news re-els, and other sources are bringing direct in- 
formation before our eyes every day. The practical, economic, and 
spiritual needs of the peoples of other lands are better known to us 
than ever before. A political world traveler returns to tell us that 
"the world is one" This knowledge opens to us more avenues for 
service. Moreover, a host of our young men are stationed in numerous 
parts of the globe. They are seeing first-hand the needs of mankind 
in remote areas of foreign lands. They are developing toward those 
peoples a kindlier spirit than they have known before. These circum- 
stances are opening avenues of human understanding which will aid 
in a greater missionary movement, especially in post-war years. 2. 
The spirit of Christ offers the only hope for world brotherhood and 



17 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



the healing of the nations. In these days of inhumanities, misunder- 
standing and hate lurk at the heart's door. But abov& the noise of 
strife, against animosities, and the evil designs of men the spirit of 
Christ is still expressed. Three Sabbaths ago we observed World 
Communion Sunday. No other institution or movement speaks in 
such language or suggests such a method of peace. In each contribu- 
tion giv&n and in each word spoken for Missions, we should know that 
we are taking part in bringing in the Kingdom of God on earth as 
taught by Christ. 

Respectfully submitted, 
J. WADE BAKER. 



13. Missionary J. Jeter Johnson, Richmond, was given ten minutes 
to speak in behalf of foreign relief. 

14. The mode-rator here called for the report of the committee on 
the new church. The committee recommended that Community Baptist 
Church be received into the fellowship of our association. By rising 
vote the report was adopted. The moderator called for the delegates 
to come to the front, L. F. Ward, J. E. Daniel, G. M. Perry, and he 
welcomed them to seats in the body. One stanza of "Bless Be The Tie 
That Binds" was sung. 

15. In vie-w of the fact that one day is too brief a time in which to 
do the work of our associationai meeting, Oscar Creech offered the 
following resolution: 

That a committee be appointed to report this afternoon on the 
future proceedure of the association, considering four propositions, 

1. Shall we continue to have one- day during the war? 

2. Shall we have two days and meet ai Ahoskie or Aulander, two 
central points- 

3. Shall we have two days, one in one section of the association 
and one in another section the next day? 

4. Or some other plan if deemed wise. 

The committee appointed was Lonnie Sasser, J. G. Pritchard, N. S. 
Hoggard, Mrs. J. A. Shaw, Mrs. W. E. White. 

16. After W. H. Hollowell read Esther 4th chapter and led in 
prayer, J. E. Lanie-r preached the annual sermon, using as his text 
verse 14. It was a timely message. 

The morning session closed with prayer by Mr. Lanier. 



AFTERNOON SESSION 

17. The afternoon session was opened by singing "To The Work", 
led by L. J. Godwin, and prayer by C. E. Parker of Winston-Salem. 

18. The Sunday school work was represented by the general su- 
perintendent, E. Y. Averett. He reported some progress in the asso- 
ciation during the year. 

19. Th© Baptist Training Union was represented by J. Wade 
Baker. It is to be regrette-d that this work has shown some decline

West Chowan Baptist Association 



during the past year. 

20. C. P. Cleveland of Newsomes, Va., read his report on Christian 
Education. 

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 
To West Chowan Baptist Association 

October 26, 1943. 

The purpose of our denominational schools is to provide training in 
secular and sacred knowledge in a Christian atmosphere so that the 
students may inculcate in their lives principles taught by Jesus with 
the ultimate view of practicing these principles in all phases of life, 
and t^ius becoming Christian citizens of the world. 

Baptist of our state have two senior colleges and five junior colleges. 
Wake Forest, our largest and oldest senior college is well on its way 
in its 110th session with an enrollment of 1,5 7 8 students on its com- 
bined campuses. A break down of the total shows 470 enrolled in the 
college of liberal arts at Wake Forest, 164 in the Bowman Gray 
School of Medicine of Wake Forest College at Winston-Salem, and five 
in the combined Duke-Wake Forest Law School at Durham. In ad- 
dition, there are 9 39 enrolled in the Army Finance School at Wake 
Forest. Fifty of these are WACS. The beautiful $250,000 new chapel 
with its lofty spire is nearing' completion, and the movement for rais- 
being launched under the leadership of very capable financiers, 
ing a seven million dollar endowment fund for this great institution is 

Meredith, our Senior college for women, opened the current session 
with an enrollment approaching the 5 00 mark. Seventy-three coun- 
ties in the state are represented, 17 other states, and Africa, Hawaii, 
Costa Rica, and Ecuador. 

At a re'cent call meeting of the Board of Trustees of Meredith Col- 
lege, it was voted unanimously to launch a fund raising campaign im- 
mediately that would provide a total of $5 65,000 to be used for con- 
struction of a chapel, swimming pool, gymnasium, and a library 
building. In addition to these buildings, approximately $50,000 would 
be spent on the present structure-s in making alterations and generally 
needed improvements. The proposed new buildings would eliminate 
many of the temporary buildings, and will fill a long fe-lt need of the 
college. This college is doing good work and in it religious training 
is given special emphasis. 

Mars Hll, our largest junior college reports an enrollment of 651 
students. Seventeen states and three foreign countries are represented 
in the enrollment. For the first time since the founding of this college 
in 18 5 6, it has more womeen enrolled than men. This year 48 stu- 
dents are wome-n and 171 are men, and 463 are freshmen. This col- 
lege is doing splendid work. There is a slight decrease in enrollment 
this year no doubt due to the war. 

Campbell Junior College ope-ned this session with an enrollment 
representing 8 states, the District of Columbia, and Cuba. A dormi- 
tory formerly used for male students was renovated during the sum- 
mer for occupancy by girls. Both regular dormitories for girls were 



19 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



completely reserved weeks before the opening. Several new members 
have been added to the faculty and staff this year. 

Wingate Junior College opened its 4 7th session with a normal en- 
rollment on September the 7th, but with the enrollment of boys great- 
ly decreased. However, all rooms in the dormitories are filled and 
students have been placed in homes in town. Wingate has been for- 
tunate in being able to open with complete faculty, and very few 
changes have been made. 

Gardner-Webb Junior College, at Boiling Springs, had a splendid 
opening this session with almost a normal enrollment. The first Bap- 
tist Church of Shelby has voted to raise $2 00,000 for this college, and 
the Methodist of the Shelby area have agreed to underwrite the con- 
struction of two buildings on the campus, these buildings are to be 
memorials to the late Mrs. Clyde Hoey and the late Mrs. J. A. Anthony, 
both of whom were sisters of former Governor O. Max Gardner. This 
incident reveals the splendid spirit of Christian co-operation of the 
Methodist of the Shelby area. 

It is with regrot we report that Chowan Junior College, due to un- 
fortunate circumstances, was unable to open this session. 

All of these institutions have needs, that are urgent which we will 
not attempt to enumerate in this report. Baptist in some states have 
lost control of their colleges, and in some cases have even lost their 
colleges because they failed to adequately support the-m financially, 
and failed to send their own boys and girls to them. It is urgent that 
we Baptist of this state continue to support our schools with our 
m^oney, and send our boys and girls to them. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CURTIS P. CLEVELAND. 

21. The president of the Board of Trustees of Chowan College, J. 
Mayon Parker, reported officially that the college was not operating 
this year. The question on the part of the Trustees was "What shall 
we do with the college"? Oscar Creech, Ahoskie, offered the following 
resolution: 

Resolved, That this body appoint a committee, composed of Dr. 
Raleigh Parker, Woodland; Gilbert Stephenson, Pendleton; C R. 
Brinkley, Colerain; Herbert Jenkins, Aulander; A. V. Cobb, Republi- 
can; Miss Sallie Parker, Jackson, who shall confer with the board of 
trustees to try to work out some plan to reopen the college after the 
war and to report at the next session a year hence. 

After discussions by Charles Jenkins, Aulander; Rev. Floyd Davis, 
Elizabeth City; and J. A. Spaulding, Murfreesboro, the resolution was 
adopted. 

22- The report on the Baptist Hospital was read by A. P. Mustian, 
Colerain, and C. E. Parker, the hospital pastor at Winston-Salem, 
spoke to the reptort. 

THE BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

The Baptist Hospital has completed a full year with its enlarged 
facilities. Instead of caring for 4,000 patients as formerly, we have had 



20 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



12,000 the past year — ^1942. It is again becoming increasingly dif- 
ficult to provide for the growing numbers of sick who come for treat- 
ment—an average of 3 3 each day. 

Of these 12,000 patients who were treated last year, 4,000 were 
service patients; that is, were unable to pay a hospital bill. These 
are the sick for whom our Mother's Day Offering is made. It is also 
interesting to note that 4,000 of this 12,000 patients were mothers 
who had, here and there in our state, 12,000 children waiting anxi- 
ously for her return. We had also about 175 ministers, returned mis- 
sionaries, ministerial students and children from our orphanage for 
whom no charge was made. 

The Hospital Training School for Nurses has 116 students in train- 
ing, 51 staff and graduate nurses, with an addition of 2 2 nurses and 
Red Cross Aids, making a nursing staff of 18 9. 

It is one of the functions of the- Baptist Hospital to educate as many 
nurses as possible with the Christian ideal of service. These are always 
selected so as to represent as nearly as possible every section of our 
state. 

Although quite a number of our medical staff are constantly going 
into the service of our country, we still have a staff of about 75 doc- 
tors, almost all of whom are specialist in the several fields of medicine 
and surgery. 

These two institutions — Hospital and Medical School — represent a 
money value to the denomination of $2,000,000. 

It is with a just pride, we trust, that th© American Medical Associa- 
tion has given the Baptist Hospital the highest rating of any hospital 
in the entire south, save one. 

The hospital desires to express to the members of this association 
their appreciation for the best Mother's Day offering, and also to the 
W. M. U.'s and other church agencies this same appreciation for their 
generous contributions of hospital linen. 

This hospital was built and has operated for these 20 years with 
one great fundamental purpose: that it shall be an institution througii 
which the half million Baptist of our state may render a definite 
Christian Service to sick and suffering hum.anity who could not, in 
most instances, have hospital treatment otherwise. It is the purpose of 
the denomination and the management that it shall forever remain 
true to this one purpose in addition to its wider service. 

West Chowan Association in its Mother's Day offering gave to Bap- 
tist Hospital this year $2029.21, last year $1364.61; or 47.7 per cent, 
four churches did not contribute, last year seven did not. 

Respectfully submitted, 
A. P. MUSTIAN. 

2 3. A slight change in the program was made to accommodate the 
last speaker, Re-v. J. Bunn Oliver, Raleigh. He spoke at this time and 
greatly stirred the hearts of the people as he described conditions in 
China. 

24- The Orphanage was represented by W. C. Reid, who is the new 
superintendent of the Kennedy Home. This was his first appearance 



21 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



with us and made a favorable impression. Last year, was the greatest 
year the Orphanage ever had. 

REPORT ON THE ORPHANAGE 

Jesus said, "The Poor ye have with you always." Surely those 16fr, 
in the world without father or mother to provide for them come in this 
group. To these Jesus said, "Ye can give v/hensoever ye will." 

Opportunities are given in our Sunday Schools to give to the Or- 
phanage once each month. All should give regularly and give more on 
these special Sundays. Then, we have the special Thanksgiving Offer- 
ing when all are requested to give at least one days' earnings to help 
provide and care for the Orphanage, children.. 

If we fail to give, some child will go hungry, and thirsty, or naked. 
Some will be sick and in need of a physician or medical aid, and no 
funds to have it done. 

It will be a joyous moment if we have done our duty and can hear 
our Saviour say, "Come ye blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom 
prepared for you from the foundation of the world, for I was an 
hungered, and ye gave me meat, I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink, 
and I was naked and ye clothed me, I was sick and ye visited me, I was 
in prison and ye came unco me " The people said. Lord, when saw 
thee hungry, or thirsty, or naked, or sick, or in prison and ministered 
nuto thee?" Then, the Master answered "Inasmuch as ye have done it 
unto one of the least of these ye have done it unto me." 

We challenge every member of the Sunday School and Church to 
give liberally, regularly and joyously to help, not because it is needed, 
and surely the need is great, when hundreds knock to be entered and 
have to be turned away, but we are to give because Jesus taught us, 
and because we love the Lord and want to obey Him in doing the 
things that are pleasing in his sight. 

The total given by the churches of West Chowan Association this 
year is $9677.85, an increase over last year of 26.4 per cent. The 
amount given last year was $7,65 0.9 5. The churches giving the larg- 
est amounts: Ahoskie $595.00, Christian Harbor $446.83, and Cashie 
$446.34. 

Let every church strive to have a greater part by setting larger goals 
for each Sunday and the Thanksgiving offerings. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ELLIOT R. STEWART. 

25. The historian, B. Y. Averett, Severn, read his report: 

HISTORIAN'S REPORT 

A report of this nature must necessarily be of things that are tangi- 
ble and physical. Back of all of this lies those intangible things which 
cannot be written in any report. That spirit of love and sacrifice that 
has made these physical things possible. 

All of the churches which have r eported to your historian have sent 
encouraging messages. This has been a great year financially for our 
work and many of our buildings have been improved and beautified as 



22 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



well as indebtedness being cancelled. Some pastors have left and 
others have come which will be noted in other reports. 

The Cashie Church at Windsor, Brother W. F. Woodall, pastor, re- 
ports one of the best years in the history of the church. Gifts to Mis- 
sions almost doubled and local gifts increased accordingly. The Ahos- 
kie Church, Brother Oscar Creech, pastor, held its service of dedica- 
tion in April with their plant entirely debt free. Brother Lloyd re- 
ports for his work that Mt. Tabor has spent approximately $1,000.00 
in renovating and beautifying the church building. Jackson has almost 
doubled gifts to Missions and other gains made. Roberts Chapel, 
Brother C. P. Cleveland, pastor, has completely redecorated the build- 
ing during the year. 

The Woodland Church has painted and redecorated the interior of 
the church building during this year. Two needed and much appre- 
ciated gifts were made to the church: that of a communion table and 
chairs; and a suit of pulpit furniture. 

The Rich Square Church has purchased a new carpet, a set of new 
hymnals, and did some minor repairs on the parsonage, all at a total 
cost of $1,137.60. 

Brother Hollowell reports that the pastors home at Republican has 
been completely covered with a new roof. The church at Askewville 
is being painted. 

Brother Mustian reports that $1500.00 has been spent on the pas- 
torium at Mars Hill and Brantleys Grove people have painted their 
church house. 

Brother Stewart reports that repairs are being made on three of the 
houses of worship on his field. Greens Cross has repaired and painted, 
new roof and painting at Ross, with covering and painting also at 
Capeharts. Brother Stewart also reports 52 baptisms and 15 received 
by letter and statement. 

For Lewiston-Kelford field Brother C. C. Prince reports the follow- 
ing: Kelford has painted the interior of their church and painted pews 
and installed a new stove. Lewiston has dedicated a plaque in honor 
of its members in Service. 

Potecasi has paid its church debt and increased in gifts and is 
waiting to start work on painting the interior of the building. Mar- 
garettsville has made improvements on building and increased in gifts 
to all purposes. Severn is at present finishing painting inside and out 
the house of worship. Gifts to local and benevolent work greatlv in- 
creased. 

Each church reporting states that good meetings were held during 
the year and fine spirit prevailing. 

26. The moderator called for the reports of committees.

7. The new pastors in the Association were recognized: R. L. Coun-

9. Rev. J. U. Teague made the report on the Biblical Recorder and 
then presented Dr. L. L. Carpenter, Editor, who spoke to the report. 

REPOKT ON THE BIBI.ICAL RECORDER 

The report on the Biblical Recorder this year is very encouraging. 
The present circulation is above 27,000, which means a net gain of 
some 9,000 during the past year. For this increase, credit is due, large*- 
ly to the pastors and leaders of North Carolina Baptists who have sup- 
ported the paper enthusiastically and done what they could to put it 
into the homes of the people. 

The Recorder has three simple subscription plans: $2.00 per year for 
individuals; $1.50 a year in clubs; smallest club 3 when church mem- 
bership is less than 100, and a club of not not less than 5 when mem- 
bership is more than 100, and $1.20 a year for the budget or family plan 
one subscription for each active, resident church family is required. 

According to the office in Raleigh the Recorder enters 8 08 homes in 
the West Chowan Association. We have 41 clubs; we have 4 budget or 
family plans, and we have 15 churches in the Association that are noit 
subscribing under the club plan nor under the budget or family plan. 
Your committee therefore urges that the pastors of these 15 churches 
do some'thing about this matter at once. 

One of the greatest needs of our people is that they be informed, 
trained, and enlisted in the whole program of the church and the 
Kingdom of God. We feel that the Biblical Recorder is of immense 
value in this great cause. 

Submitted by the Committee, 
J. U. TEAGUE. 

10. As Rev. W. C. Reed, Supt. of the Kennedy Home, had not ar- 
rived the Moderator called the next order with the understanding that 
the Orphanage discussion would come later. 

11. W. H. Hollowell gave the report on Christian Education. 

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

The distinction which Christian Education has made in the general 
term education appears all but extinct in many of our denominational 
colleges. The distinction has been and should now be so pronounced 
that the difference should at once be perceptible. The world is most 
certainly in need now of the influence which Christianity makes upon 
the thinking of man. For that reason, if none other, our denomina- 
tinal schools should be Christian in the truest sense of the word and 
should therefore live and thrive. 

In North Carolina, we Baptists have seven colleges, two senior — < 



16 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



Wake Forest and Mereditti, and five junior — Mars Hill, Campbell, \ 
Wingate-, Gardner-Webb and Chowan. Chowan to our shame is tem- 
porarily resting. 

Wake Forest reports the largest freshman class in its history, num- 
bering 313. The total registration for this session is 736, of whom 125 
are women. Of the enrollment 10 are in the joint Wake Forest-Duke 
law school and 191 are in the Bowman Gray School of Medicine at 
Winston-Salem. 

Meredith reports an enrollment of 580 for this session. This is the 
largest enrollment in its history. 

All our active junior colleges have opened with good enrollments, 
especially Mars Hill which reports an enrollment of 704. 

The most of our schools are now in the midst of raising money for 
repairs, equipment, enlargement and endowment. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. H. HOLLOWELL. 

12. The Moderator called for the re>port by the Special Committee 
appointed a year ago to report on the future of Chowan College. Mrs. 
Sallie Parker read the report for the Committee. 

RESOLUTIONS OX CHOWAN COLLEGE 

We, the Committee appointed by the West Chowan Association, beg 
leave to report the following: 

Your Committee, realizing the seriousness of the Chowan College 
situation, undertook, first of all to find the assets of the CoUeige; in- 
cluding the good will and esteem within the territory of the two asso- 
ciations supporting the College, We regarded, and still regard this as 
the chief asset of the College. We found the Board of Trustees willing 
and anxious to cooperate and they readily made available all the in-{ 
formation sought. The financial condition of the institution was found 
to be good. The buildings need some necessary repairs. 

It appears to your Committee that the-re is a real need for a Junior 
College in Eastern North Carolina as no such institution exists in the 
entire eastern belt of the Siate. Therefore, we offer the followin\g 
resolution: 

That the Association decide today whether or not they desire to 
reopen Chowan College. 
If so, we make the following recommendations: 

A. That the churches begin at once to collect through pledges and 
gifts an amount of not less than $100,000.00 for repairs and 
improvements, looking forward to a ten year expansion program 
which would put Chowan College on an equal basis with the best 
of our Junior Collegeo. 

B. In addition, to secure its continued life and maintenance, we 
recommend that when Chowan College is reopened all the 
churches throughout the Association include in their local bud- 
gets a sum averaging $100.00 per church per year. 

We further recommend that this resolution be presented to th Exe- 
cutive Committee of the Chowan Association. 

J. M. Duncan, a trustee, made the motion to adopt the report and ask- 
ed that Rev. R. D. Stephenson, a life-long friend of the College, be given 
the privilege to address the body. The privilege was granted and he 
emphasized what Chowan College had meant to this section as well as 
to the world and urged the importance of reopening it. 

The Moderator explained that according to the Report the first thing 
was to decide whether to reopen or not reopen the college. The motion 
was so amended as to vote on this question first. The vote was takken 
by standing and was unanimous to reopen. E. H. Potts, L». Sasser and

M. J. Evans made further remarks and the vote was taken on the re- 
port as a whole. This vote was by standing and was unanimous for the 
report. 

The Moderator asked the Special Committee appointed last year— 
Dr. Raleigh Parker, Gilbert Stephenson, C. R. Brinkley, Herbert Jen- 
kins, A. V. Cobb and Miss Sallie Parker, to confer with the Executive 
Committee of the Chowan Association about this special report and the 
action of the AVest Chowan Association in reference to it. 

Upon motion of Lonnie Sasser, a Steering Committee was appointed 
by the Moderator to represent the Association in taking the matter of 
j-aising the $100,000 to the churches and then when the college is open- 
ed to see that the churches raise an average of $100 each for its coni- 
tinned life and maintenance. The Moderator appointed on this com- 
mittee, Mrs. Sallie Parker, Jackson; M. J. Evans, Ahoskie; Herbert 
Jenkins, Aulander. 

13. The Orphanage report was prepared by J. M. Duncan. W. C. 
Reed, Superintendent of the Kennedy Home, having arrived, gave an 
interesting presentation of the work of the Orphanage. 

REPORT ON THE ORPHANAGE 

We have cared for during 1943, 698 in the two homes, 23 in boarding 
homes, and 6 in their own homes. We have been able to place a larger 
number than ever before, thus enabling us to be of service to more chil 
dren. 

Attendance in school reached almost 9 9 per cent, due to the general 
good health of the children and the almost total absence of any conta- 
gious diseases. 

In our enthusiasm to win the war, in our anxiety about our boys who 
are at the front giving their last full measure of devotion we should not 
overlook the things for which we are fighting. We must win the war, 
but in wining it let us continue to make men and women who will be 
worthy and capable of rebuilding a shocked world and carrying on the 
work of the Kingdom of God. Each day 6 00 children must depend upon 
friends of the Orphanage for support. These friends have not failed in 
the past and are not going to fail now. 

On account of the increased cost of living the monthly contributions 
and Thanksgiving offering should be larger this 3"ear than they have 
ever been before. 

In the name of Christ whose love for the orphan child was supreme 
and as an opportunity for enriching our own lives, let us rededicate our- 
selves to the task of supporting and training the boys and girls corny 
mitted to our care. 

Respectfully submitted, 
J. M. DUNCAN. 

14. The annual sermon was preached by A. P. Mustian. He read 
John 3:1-21, and used as his text verse 7, "Ye must be born again." 

15. The Clerk made some remarks about the Digest of Church Let- 
ters which had been mimeographed and placed in the hands of all those 
present. By vote it was decided to continue the Digest. 

16. Mt. Carmel and Pine Forest did not send in church letters and 
the Moderator asked the Clerk to try to find out why the letters were 
not sent. 

17. Announcements were made about lunch by the host pastor, J. 
B. Folds. 

18. The Moderator called for silent prayer for all Service men and 
women and then R. D. Stephenson gave the benediction.

2 3. P. T. W.orrell spoke for the American Bible Society and urged 
our support of it. 

24. The report on The Ministers' Retirement Plan was prepared 
and read by Herbert Jenkins. He then discussed briefly his report and 
emphasized that North Carolina stood at the bottom of the list in num- 
ber of churches enrolled in the plan. 

REPORT ON MINISTERS' RETIREMENT 

It is encouraging to report another year of progress for the Minis- 
ter's Retirement Plan. 

Each of the nineteen states and the District of Columbia, comprising 
the convention, in which some form of minister's retirement annuity is 
offered, has shared in this growth. 

At present, dues are being paid on more than $12,000,000 of salaries, 
or 70 per cent of the total of all salaries paid by the churches of the 
convention. 

Specifically, there are some outstanding figures of church partici- 
pation in a number of states, the leading of which are Maryland and 
New Mexico with 100 per cent each enlisted. South Carolina and Vir- 
ginia show 99 per cent each, Arkansas 9 6 per cent, Georgia 8 5 per e'ent, 
Oklahoma 8 3 per cent, and, Texas 8 2 per cent of all dliU/t'clies partici- 
pating. 

Maryland has the largest per cent of preachers enrolled, 80 per cent, ~ 
followed by Virginia with 68 per cent. 

We regret to note the figures for North Carolina show the smallest 
per cent, 2 5.8 per cent of churches enrolled of any state in the South- 
ern Baptist Convention, while the per cent of enlisted preachers is 
substantially below the average of all the states comprising the Con- 
vention. The figures for North Carolina, since the inauguration of the 
plan in 1938 are: 

pastors enlisted 49 3 

pastors unenlisted 348 

churches enlisted 665 * 

churches unenlisted 1909. 
Fair progress has been made in our association. At present the 
latest available figures show 11 pastors and 22 churches enrolled. This 
represents about 50 per cent of the pastors and 38 per cent of the 
churches. 

On behalf of so worthy an undertaking, may our churches increas- 
ingly respond to the high privilege and sacred obligation to share in 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



19 



providing economic security after retirement for those faithful soldiers 
of the cross who have labored so long and so well in the kingdom en- 
terprise, and, whose passion it has been to win souls rather than gain 
gold. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HERBERT JENKINS. 

25. The Woman's Missionary Union was represented by Mrs. W. E. 
White, Superintendent. She reported a year of progress with the 
women. 

REPORT OP WOMEN'S WORK 

In his volumne "God in These Times", Dr. Henry Van Dusen likens 
Christianity to a cord. W'e believe the W. M. U. of the West Chowan 
has woven thru their prayers, their study, their training of our youth, 
their offerings and community missions, leave a strong cord of love 
that will prOve to be a life line to help circle the globe\ 

In April, at the Ahoskie church, we observed the 50th anniversary 
of the organization of our own W. M. U. work in this association. A 
pageant was written and directed by Mrs. C. W. Jones. The history 
was written by Mrs. Gordon Maddrey and read as the scenes were 
dramatized from the stage. Over 5 00 of our women were present for 
this occasion. 

During the month of June, our own missionary, Miss Roberta Pearl 
Johnson, visited over two-thirds of the churches and every society was 
so grouped to be able to attend one or more of these servics. 

Altho our women have been bowed down with worry and anxiety, 
and extra tasks to perform, they have not failed in their service for 
their Dord. Our gifts to Missions during the past year amounted to 
$20,646.33, or over $2500.00 more than the year before; for local 
work $11,561.65 or over $4,000.00 more than reported last year. 

May we strive to keep the Home Front and not fail our brave youth 
who are dying that we might have life and the pursuit of happiness. 

MRS. W. E. WHITE 

26. Two stanzas of "Break Thou Th© Bread of Life" were sung 
with J. L. Jones leading. J. B. Folds gav© the report on Missions. L. 
L. Carpenter, editor of the Biblical Recorder, represented the State 
Mission Board and spoke to the report. He used as a text, "The Field 
Is The World '. He showed how that now as never before we see the 
field as the world. 

MISSIONS REPORT 

The West Chowan Association has made significant progress this 
year. We have paid off all debts on church buildings, and free of debt 
we look ahead and plan to further advance God's Kingdom work 
through Missions. God has richly blessed our Churches and we are 
able to make a good report. 

These things are significant in regard to our work: All together we 
have given this year $59,382.70 to missions. This means $5.31 per 
capita. We have given $99,404.99 to local expenses. This means that 
we have given approximately two times as much to local expenses as to 
outside causes. 

We ought, therefore, to double our gifts to missions in the coming 
year; to teach more Mission Study books in our churches; to havei 
more special programs on State and Foreign Missions; more seasons of 
Prayer for State and Foreign Missions along with members of W. M. S.; 
and by all means more interest in local mission work. 

JOSEPH B. FOLDS. 

27. Fletcher Ford turned in his report on the Hospital. Charles 



20 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



Parker, chaplain of the hospital at Winston-Salem, gave an encourag- 
ing report of the institution. 

REPORT ON THE BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

The Baptist Hospital was established by our denomination for the 
purpost of providing hospital facilities for the sick of our state who are 
not financially able to pay for treatment. In normal times, about one- 
third of the population of our state is found in this class. 

Since the opening of the hospital in 1923 — a little more than 20 
years ago, about 77,000 patients have been treated to-date. Of this 
number, about 2 8,000 were of these for whom the Institution was pri- 
marily provided — service or charity patients. 

The Mother's Day offering by the- churches this year amounts to-date 
to about $90,000. The largest ever. This includes hospital linen donat- 
ed by the W. M. U.'s and other church agencies in the amount of about 
i'$2,000 so far this year. 

The Training School for nurses has an enrollment at present of 119. 
Of these, 101 are "Cadets." That is, they receive certain expenses for 
their training from the National Governmnt in consideration of their 
needed service in the present war emergency. 

About two-thirds of the patients who come for treatment are pay- 
patients. They provide their own doctor as they may choose, and pay 
their hospital bill. 

About one-third of the population of our state in normal times fall 
in the class that cannot pay for hospital treatment. 

This Institution is attempting to keep uppermost in mind always the 
purpose for which it was created, primarily the treatment of the poor 
in a Christian Institution. 

The Hospital, in cooperation with the Medical School, has a staff of 
doctors capable of treating almost any condition of physical ills. 

Respectfully submitted, 
FLETCHER FORD. 

28. An address on Civic Righteousness was given by M. J. Evans, 
one of our laymen and representative to the Legislature next session. 
This was his first appearance before this body. He called attention 
to the Resolution passed in 18 8 5 in reference to the manufacture and 
sale of intoxicating liquors as beverages and that this resolution still 
stands. 

29. Dr. C. G. Powell presented the following resolutions, which 
were discussed by Charles Parker, R. S. Satterfield, Oscar Creech, and J. 
L. Jones. The resolutions were adopted by a standing vote. 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION IN 
SESSION AT AULANDER, OCTOBER 24, 1944. 

First, That we do reaffirm oour stand on the Resolution passed by 
this body in session at Pleasant Grove in 1885 "That henceforth this 
Association withdraw fellowship from any church that allows its mem- 
bers to engage in the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquor as 
a beverage." 

Second, That we deem the sale of beer and wine or selling liquors in 
ABC stores a violation of the spirit and letter of this resolution. 

Signed: 

C. G. POWELL, 
OSCAR CREECH. 

30. J. Wade Baker, the Historian, moved to Selma a few weeks 
ago, but sent his report.

HISTORIAN'S REPORT 
By J. Wade Baker 

War still rages. The third year of it will close December 7. The 
struggle is tense and more and more of our boys are being wounded 
killed. 

This report doe-s not include nearly ail that has been done and plan- 
ed among the churches during this associational year. We are pri- 
marily limited to the tangible things. Many churches have not report- 
ed to the historian, and yet some of these have made accomplishments 
worthy to be mentioned. 

It has bee'n another great year financially and much has been done 
in beautifying and repairing church buildings and property. We also 
know that these physical evidences are a result of the love and de- 
votion of the people — ithose spiritual factors which cannot be calculat- 
ed and included in this report. 

Rev. Richard Lloyd reports that the Jackson Church has purchased 
a vacant lot adjacent to the church on which a new pastorium will be 
built when circumstances permit. At their revival Dr. Kelly White of 
Nashville, Tenn., preached a series of fine sermons. Rev. Frank 
Handley preached during the revival meeting at Mt. Tabor. 

From the Colerain Church, Rev. P. T. ¥/orrell reports that $6500.00 
of a goal of $10,000.00 has been contributed to build a new pastorium 
and do some repair on the church. Water is to b© put in the church 
as soon as possible. 

Rev. W. H. Hollowell reports from his field that the Askewville 
church has been painted inside and out. The outside of the Merry 
Hill church has been painted, and plans are underway to paint the in- 
terior. A good year is reported for the entire field. 

The Kelford church has several hundred dollars on hand for the 
construction of an educational plant. Some repairs have been made 
on the parsonage at Lewiston. Rev. Joe F. Roach, pastor of these two 
churches, reports that mid-week services are held by both congrega- 
tions. 

The Margarettsville church has made further progress in the near 
completion and equipment of its building. 

The pastorium at Severn has been repaired and renovated by the 
Severn church. 

A new roof has been put on the church at Woodland and the build- 
ing painted without. 

Several thousand dollars has been raised in contributions and 
pledges for the erection of a new church auditorium at Rich Square. 

Mt. Carmel church has been renovated inside and out, and new 
pews have been purchased. An even more notable report from this 
church is that two young men were ordained to the Christian ministry, 
Rev. Woody Hasty and Rev. Otis Pruden. These were ordained on 
the second Sunday evening in September. 

A number of changes have been made in pastorates and fields dur- 
ing the year. Severn and Robert's Chapel formed a field that is now 
being served by Rev. Fletcher Ford who came to the field during the 
spring from Virginia". Potecasi and Margarettsville which were in the 
field with Severn are now without regular pastors. Rev. E. Y. Averett 
resigned the Severn field in October to accept a call to the Benson 
Baptist church. Harrellsville and Christian Harbor now compose a 
field. Rev. W. C. Francis was called to this field from Wilmington. 
Colerain called Rev. P. T. Worrell from Yanceyville in June of this 
year for full time work. Rev. David Bobbitt left the Colerain field last 
October to accept the Green Memorial Church -in Charlotte. River 



22 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



Side church, which was in the field with Colerain is now being served 
by Rev. A. P. Mustain. Rev. C. C. Prince resigned the Lewiston-Kel- 
ford field to accept a chaplaincy in the Army. Rev. Joe F. Roach came 
to this field in September from Norlina. Rev. C. H. Trueblood rer 
signed the Seaboard-Elam field to accept a church near Fayetteville. 
Rev. J. Wade Baker resigned the field at Rich Square and Woodland 
in September to accept the Selma Baptist Church last August.. 

Menola Baptist Church had the pleasure of ordaining one of her 
sons, W. H. Vinson, Jr., to the Gospel Ministery. 

It is with pride that we record that our association has six chaplains 
in the service of our country; N. L. Blythe, Harrellsville; M. R. 
Brown, Windsor; Clarence Godwin, Ahoskie; W. P. Milne, Aulander; 
P. B. Nickens, Murfreesboro; C. C. Prince, Lewiston. 

Last spring in Secretary M. A. Huggins' report of gifts of the 
churches for 194 3, 3 2 of our churches appeared on his honor roll for 
sending funds each month in the year. The West Chowan led all other 
associations in this. Thirty-seven churches sent funds each month to 
the Orphanage. This was more than any other association had. One 
of 3 associations to be 100 per cent of churches given to the Orphanage 
was the West Chowan. The 3 with 10 per cent of churches giving were 
Rowan, 21 churches; South Yadkin, 30; Weset Chowan 58. 

31. W. A. Thomas, treasurer, made his report:

32. The Moderator called for the report of special committees. 
Time, Place and Preacher Committee reported that the next session 
would be held October 30, 19 45, with Ahoskie Baptist church. The 
Committee recommended that there be no sermon in view of a one- 
day session, 

33. The Finance Committee reported ^$276. 20 collected with what 
had been sent to the Clerk with the church letters. He reported that

Historian — E. R. Stewart. 

38. P. T. Worrell made the motion to express our appreciation to 
the pastor and people of the Aulander church for the fine way in which 
they had entertained the Association. 

39. Mr. W. D. Boone, the Moderator addressed the vice-moderator, 
and made the following explanation. 

There are some vacancies on the Board of Trustees of Chowan Col- 
lege that should be filled at the meeting of the Baptist State Conven- 
tion in November. Since the Association has voted to reopen the 
College it would be well that a committee be appointed to confer with 
another similar committee from the Chowan Association and the whole 
committee confer with the Board of Trustees in recommending names 
to fill the vacancies. Upon motion of Lonnie Sasser the Moderator 
appointed as this committee, Lonnie Sasser, C. G. Powell, J. L. Jones. 

40. The sixty-second session of the West Chowan Association came 
to a close after a full one-day session, but of a high spiritual order,

How the West Chowan Association Came To Be 

1. The Kehukee Association was organized November 9, 1769, 
(according to Paschall). Sandy Run (then called Bertie) was the only 
West Chowan church in the organization. 

2. In 1806, the Kehukee was divided at the Roanoke RiveT and 
north of the River in North Carolina became the Chowan Association. 
The following West Chowan churches were in the new organization: 
Ahoskie, Sandy Run, Bethlehem, Cashie, Meherrin, Ross (then called 
Ross' Meeting House), Cole-rain (then called Wiccacon). 

3. In 18 8 3 the Chowan Association divided at the Chowan River 
and the three counties between the Chowan and Roanoke Rivers be-* 
came the West Chowan Association. Twenty-eight churches formed 
the Association. 

The Kehukee was probably the fourth Baptist Association in Ameri- 
ca. The Philadelphia formed in 1707 was first; The Charleston (S. C.) 
in 1751; the Sandy Creek (around Sanford) in 1758; and the Kehukee 
in 1769.

PROCEEDINGS 

— of the — 

Sixty-Third Annual Session 

— of the — 

West Chowan Baptist Association 

— held with — 

Ahoskie Baptist Church 
Tuesday, October 30, 1945 

(HERTFORD COUNTY) 

Morning Session 

1. The West Chowan Baptist Association met with the Ahoskie- 
Baptist Church in the sixty-third session, Tuesday, October 30, 1945. 
A one day session was held. The Moderator, W. D. Boone, called the 
meeting to order. 

2. Song, "How Firm A Foundation", was sung and Earl J. Rogers 
led in the Devotional exercises. He read, Isa. 6:1-10 and offered prayer. 

3. The order of business was presented by Oscar Creech. 

4: T. N. Cooper, presented a report on the American Bible Society. 

5. J. L. Jones gave the report on the Ministers Retirement Plan 
and discussed very ably his report. 

REPORT ON MINISTERS RETIREMENT 

One of the few circumstances which made it hard for the ministry 
in the past was that it offered no security for old age. Practically all 
they had to look forward to was a life well spent in the service of the 
Lord and then to be taken care of as best they could. 

This condition has been remedied so that the ministry need not look 
forward to be "Laid on the Shelf", but to be well taken care of through 
the Minister's Retirement Plan. 

This plan, which is thoroughly explained in the contract, one which 
is shared by the minister, the church and the convention. This plan 
provides that a minister in cooperation with the churches and the con- 
vention, may help provide for his retirement during the years of his 
activity. 

All of the nineteen states which comprise the Southern Baptist Con- 
viction, along with the District of Columbia has some plan of Minister's 
retirement. 

One of the things which we hope our State Convention will be able 
to do is to establish an Old Ministed's Home. While we are providing 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



15 



for the financial condition, there are some ministers who have no home 
where they can feel welcome. 

One thing which our Baptist people would gladly support would be 
a home where they knew that the old ministers could be dwell care 
for in their old age. 

We have in our orphanage, a place where we take care of the child- 
ren who are misfortunate enough not to be wanted, and I believe we 
could do as much for our old ministers. 

May we support the retirement plan and look forward to the time 
when we can have an institution which the retired minister can have 
a home and freedom. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. L. JONES

11. Rev J. E. Lanier, presented the report on Hospital. 

ASSOOIATIONAIi REPORT OP NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST 
HOSPITAL — 1945 

The North Carolina Baptist Hospital was incorporated in 1922 and 
received its first patient May 28, 1923. Originally planned as a 100 
bed institution, it was enlarged in 1942 to a capacity of 247 beds and 
55 bassinets. 

The underlying purpose of the Baptist Hospital has always been 
medical care for the poor. Since the day it received its first patient it 
has offered a high type of hospital care on a statewide basis. Its cal- 
iber of service was enchanced many times over when the Wake Forest 
Medical School became a four-year school in 1941 and was located ad- 
jacent to the Hospital. When the Baptist Hospital became a teaching 
hospital, its purpose became two-fold teaching and healing, the twin 
endeavors of Christ. 

The Baptist Hospital operates one of the fullest approved schools 
of nursing in the South, and at the present time has an enrollment of 
about 150 young ladies receiving professional training under Chris- 
tian auspices. The students are selected under very high standards. 
Those students come from all over North Carolina and represent the 
highest type of womanhood, mentally, physically, and morally. While 
the most rigid scientific training is given the girls, the hospital takes 
great pride in the Christian and humane attitude it developes in these 
girls. 

Of the 8,000 patients admitted as bed patients each year, slightly 
over 4,000 of these are service patients who pay no doctor's fee, and 
who pay but a slight portion of their hospital expenses. During 1944 
approximately 3,000 of these service patients paid absolutely nothing 
toward their hospital bill. It is toward the expense of these patients 
that the money given on Mother's Day each year is used. In addition to 
the free bed patients the hospital gives diagnostic examinations to ap- 
proximately 20,000 free patients who are not admitted to the hospital 
each year. The cost to the hospital of free service rendered during 1944 
was $198,648.92. 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



17 



The hospital has developed into one of the top ranking hospitals of 
our nation in the caliber of its medical work. In developing its medical 
program care has been taken that the» spiritual atmosphere of the hos- 
pital should develop to the same measure. Emphasis is given at every 
turn, in its educational program, in its employees, and with its pati- 
ents to the spiritual needs of all coming in contact with the hospital. 
The religious program is under the direction of a full-time chaplain 
and student secretary. This fine and fruitful service is made possible 
in part by the generosity of Mr. C. M. Scott of High Piont, North Caro- 
lina, who contributes toward the cost of the program. Due to the close 
touch which the nature of sickness allows the Chaplain to have with the 
patients, we have had many conversions and redidications in the hos- 
pital. 

North Carolina Baptist have developed in thir hospital one of the 
greatest medical centers in our country, and at the same time one of 
the strongest influences for the cause of Christ that exists in any land. 
Its huge opportunities for serving as an agency of mercy, as a means 
of teaching, and as a means of spreading the influence of Christ are a 
challenge to the generous heart of our great denomination that its pro- 
gram will not be restricted for lack of finances. All of its activities are 
operated on the highest of standards, and hence it requires a trem- 
endous budget. It is self-supporting with the exception of its charity 
work, and it is for this merciful side of its program that North Carolina 
Baptist this year are giving over $100,000 through the Mother's Day 
Program. 

Respectfully Submitted, 
John E. Lanier 

12. The report on the Biblical Recorder was handed in by Raynor 
Wfoodard, who also presented R. L. Satterfield, Raleigh. Brother Sat- 
terfield spoke ably on the report, and also brought greetings from 
Merideth College. He reported a circulation of 33,000 for our State 
Baptist paper. 

REPORT OF THE BIBLICAL RECORDER 

The report of the Biblical Recorder this year is very encouraging. 
The circulation of the paper for the past year has increased rapidly. 
The present circulation is about 34,000, which means a net gain for the 
past twelve months of approximately 7,5 00, and the circulation is more 
than three times what it was three years ago. For this increase we are 
profoundly grateful to God and to the pastors and leaders of North 
Carolina Baptist who have supported the paper enthusiastically and 
have done what they could to get it into the homes of the people. We 
want to express our appreciation to Ge-neral Secretary M. A. Huggins 
and all the State workers for the great help which they hav^e rendered. 

The paper has also shown good progress financially. The State Con- 
vention very generously agreed to grant to the Recorder for support 
during the year a total of $5,000, but we are happy to report that we 
have not had to call on the Convention for any of this money, for the 
paper is now financially self-supporting. However, we would not em- 
phasize this matter too much, for after all, the important thing is to 
get out a good wholesome paper and to get it into the homes of our 
Baptist people, even if at times it might not be financially self-support- 
ing. 

The Recorder has three simple subscription plans: $2.00 a year for 
individual subscriptions; $1.50 a year for clubs, a minimum of at least 
three subscriptions is required for every church reporting less that a 



18 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



hundred members and five- subscriptions for every church reporting 
more than a hundred members; $1.20 a year for the budget, or family 
plan, one subscription for each active, resident church family is re-quir- 
ed. We hope that pastors, superintendents, deacons, Training Union, 
and W. M. U. leaders will do what they can to e«ncourage a good club 
in every Baptist church; or, better still, to persuade the churches to 
inaugurate the budget plan. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Raynor Woodard 

13. P. T. Worrell turned in the report on Missions and presented 
our State Mission Secretary, M. A. Huggins. Mr. Huggins presented R. 
K. Redwine, who addressed the Association briefly but powerfully. 
Bro. Huggins then brought us a stirring and challenging message on 
Missions. 

REPORT ON MISSIONS 

With the close of the war, we are brought face to face with the 
greatest challenge in Missions that we have ever confronted. The need 
Is great. The smile of God's favor has been upon us. The eyes of the 
world is turned upon us in the United States. Many of the great lead- 
ers of the world realize that "It is either Christ or Chaos." 

It is with gratitude we note that the gifts to Missions in this Asso- 
ciation has increased from $59,382.70 last year to $72,467.41 this 
year. This is an increase of $13,084.71. The per capita gifts of resident 
church members has increased from $5.30 last year to $6.20 this year 

Now in the time to do our very best for Christ. Our very life is de- 
pendant upon it.

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Christian schools were pioneers in the field of higher education in 
America and throughout the years they have been dependable sources 
of leadership. The present need would indicate the absolute need for 
Christian education in established schools and colleges, if civilization 
is to endure. We can be assured there is no philosophy, no science, no 
art which apart from the principles and practices of Christianity, meet 
the universal needs of man. 

At the present time, when millions of our young men and women 
witnessed four and a half years of war, seeing suffering on every hand 
death meeted out to thousands, and they are far from home with all 
kinds of wrong facing them everywhere, we can see why we need a 
finer and better spiritual development in our colleges. This situation

of a closed war undoubtedly offers a challenge to the educational in- 
stitutions of our day. The young men and young women in colleges' 
today and those who for the next ten years will attend the colleges 
are those who for better or for worse during the next thirty yeays^ 
must bear most of the responsibility of carrying on the business, the 
government, the institutions, the education and the spiritual training 
of our day. 

We cannot help se© the need of progressive Christian colleges that 
keep apace with modern trends in every phase of life and offer con- 
structive programs and always hold to Christian standards and the 
teaching of Christian principles. 

A very serious fact we must face is, the fact that for sometime state 
governments have alloted large sums of money for their universities 
and colleges and they have increased and improved in ways that it 
has been difficult for schools supported by volunteer gifts to increase 
and improve. And unfortunately the state supported institutions place 
very little stress on the teaching of Christian principles and doctrines. 
Youth today needs something to which they can turn for strength, 
something in which they can have faith, something to aid them in 
working out a philosophy of life, a moral yardstick by which to live 
and to measure life today. Churches and Christian schools can give 
this aid. Baptist schools have done much in the past and they will be 
able to do a great service now and in the years to come if we, as in- 
dividuals, support them and cooperate with their administrative of- 
ficers. 

There are, however, pressing needs in our schools and right now, 
there is a serious need for progressive Christian educational program. 
Our churches and denominational work, our government and entire 
civilization, need Christian schools, let us as Christians and as Bapti- 
sts consider seriously our responsibility and enter with a cooperative 
spirit into supporting constructive programs of Christian education in 
our already established institutions.

18. In discussing Christian Education, Chowan College was dis- 
cussed. The report of the special committee was called for, but no one 
was present to give this report. The situation at Chowan College was 
however given by J. L. Jones. Several members of the Association joi- 
ned in the discussion. It appeared to the body that for some reason 
the special committee appointed last year to collect money for Chow- 
an College and act as a steering committee, had failed to act. A motion 
was made that the committee be discharged and that the pastors of 
this and Chowan Association be asked to serve in its place 

19. Motion was made for the chair to appoint a committee to fill 
some vacancies in the Board of Trustees for Chowan College. The 
chair appointed Lonnie Sasser, C. G. Powell and J. L. Jones to serve 
in this capacity. 

20. R. L. Councilman, brought in the report on B. T. U. 

21. E. R. Stewart presented the report on Sunday School.

HISTORIANS REPORT 

by E. R. STEWART 

After four years of war many anticipated undertakings are begining 
to take form. Our people have experienced further financial gains, 
money is more free than ever. Debts have been lifted until every church 
reported debt free in 1944. The past year has been one of accumulation 
and planing for building, painting, beautifying and remodeling plants. 

This report will not cover all that has been acco'mplished, since all 
of the pastors have not reported. 

It has been another year of financial gains, but due to the lack cf 
materials most churches have raised funds and made plans. 

Quite a fe(W churches have raised funds to build, remodle, paint or 
beautify. 

The year ahead will be a building year. 

Rev. R. L. Councilman, reports as follows — "Our church has raised 
$7,800 for an organ and we hope to have it installed soon. The Cashie 
\ Church has been painted in certain rooms. The parsonage has been 
completely renovated. We are now in the midst of raising funds for 
an Educational building". 

"Holy Grove," he says "has been covered and painted on the out-

Rev. W. H. HolloweU writes, "that Merry Hill Church has been pain- 
side, new steps built, and electric lights installed." 

ted on the inside and that he has had a good year in all of his chur- 
ches." 

At Lewiston, Rev. Joe F. Roach has led his people to put in water 
and bath and shrubs around the parsonage. 

Rev. J. L. Jones reports "that Murfreesboro Church is raising funds 
to put in apipe organ, with $1500 raised. Also he has led his people in 
the completion of the basement at a cost of $1500 and that it is paid 
for, and the work goes on in a good way." 

Rev. Richard Lloyd says, "that Potecasi Church has been painted 
insid and outside. Almost sufficient funds are in hand for the" needed 
pews and pulpit furniture. Plans for a central heating plant is making 
satisfactory progress. The church supported generously the Nnited War 
Fund and the Red Cross". 

Rev. Lloyd reports at "Jackson that there are no material advance- 
ments, but that it has been the best yoar of the present pastorate in 17 
years, in Baptisms, and in the increase of more thanl 100 per cent in 
contributions to the cooperative program. " 

Rev. P. T. Wlorrell reports "that Colerain Church has raised money 
for the building of a new Pastors home, and for some building and 
repairs for the church, as noon as, labor and materials are available 
The church has placed an order for a Hammond Organ. A fine Daily 
Vacation Bible School was held for 2 weeks and gifts per capita are 
greatly increased". 

Rev. E. R. Stewart reports for Green's Cross Field. "Ross Church 
painted and varnished the inside of the Church at a cost of $200. Ross 
church was covered, repaired and painted on the outside, new concrete 
steps were built at front and back. 

Green's Cross Church was repaired and painted on the outside and 
inside at a cost of around $600. 

Capehart's Church was covered, repaired and painted on outside at 
a cost of $1700. All bills are paid. Plans for raising funds to beautify 
the inside go forward, 

Ross, Green's Cross, Elm Grove and Capeharts have purchased new 
song books. Ross, Gre«en's Cross and Elm Grove have beautified the 
ard with pecan trees for shade. Elm Grove Church plans to build ad- 
ditional S. S. class rooms or new auditorium. 

"Riverside Church was covered, repaired and painted" reports their 
new pastor Rev. A. P. Mustian. 

Rev. T. N. Cooper reports "that Woodland and Rich Square Churches 
are raising funds to build new church houses. 

All pastors of the Association are planing for enlargment. 

While we build materrially let us not neglect the spiritual. History 
of God's people is being recorded. 

"And this knowing the season, that it is already time for you to a- 
wake out of sleep: for now is salvation nearer than when we first be- 
lieved. The night is far spent, and the day is at hand: Let us therefore 
cast of the works of darkness, and let up put on the< armor of light. Let 
us walk becomingly; as in the day; not in revelling and drunkenness, 
not in chamberling and wantonness, not in strife and jealousy. 

But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ and make" not provision for the 
flesh, to fulfil the lusts there of" — Romans 13:11-14. 

It is not what we do but how we live that counts. Let us build strong 
and high, and well. Let us build for God.

West Chowan Baptist Association 



REPORT ON ORPHANAGE 

Wars may come and go, we may sign treaties of peace, and establish 
world tribunals, but the homeless child is ever with us. Wars have a- 
Iways been hazardous to homes and to children. During the past two 
years, many children have been born in this country who have never 
seen, and never will see their fathers. These fathers have given their 
last full measure of devotion in the service of their country. Others, 
through dissipation and noglect have shirked their responsibility as 
parents — and left helpless children dependent on Christian citizens. 
Shall we be faithful to these children? This condition is nothing new. 
It gave Christ whe-n He was in the world great concern and caused Him 
to exclaim: "But who so shall offend one of these little ones — it were 
better for him that a millstone be hanged about his neck — " Our or- 
phanage is the most direct channel through which Baptist may ren- 
der service to dependent children. 

During the past year, in spite of the tremendous increased cost of 
living, we cared for epproximately 700 children in the Mills Home and 
Kennedy Home, through Mother's Aid and in Boarding homes. In ad- 
dition to this, orphanage representatives rendered perhaps their best 
service to more than 300 children, by helping families work out thoir 
domestic problems, thus preventing the nessity of having to take these 
children into the- institution. Through these faithful efforts more than 
a thousand children were aided. 

It costs $6 75.00 a day to care for the large family now in the orphan- 
age. We cannot build orphanages large enough to care for all thee- needy 
children. Christian people should in some way stimulate fathers and 
mothers to rededicate- themselves to the task of building good homes. 
Wrecked homes are the greatest tragedies of the present generation. We 
win military victories in vain, at the expense of our fine boys and girls, 
unless we can here at home win moral and spiritual victories that wiU 
unshackle the children of tomorrow. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Thomas J. Faulk. 

25. Bro. Reid brought a ve-ry inspiring message on the orphanage. 

26. The committee on Time, Place and preacher brought in their 
report as follows:

We recommend that we meet the first day in one section of the

We recommend that as we have no invitations, the place of meet- 
ing be referred to the Executive Committee.

27. The credentials committee reported as follows: 

We recommend that the letter of the resolution No. 3 of 1944 be 
carried out with the privilege of the churches concerned to have until 
January 1, 194 6 to win over or exclude such members as mentioned in 
resolution and make report to clerk of Association to such action, and

28. Immediately upon the report of the Credentials Committee, R. 
L. Councilman brought in a prepared statement by the Cashie Church, 
Windsor, his statement carried with it a motion that the Association 
rescend its action of 1865 and reaffirmed in 1944. 

STATEMENT OF CASHIE CHURCH 

October 30, 1945 

Brother Moderator, 

I believe that this great Association can find a better way to take 
its stand against the Liquor traffic and promote temperance than thro- 
ugh the measure (Passed in 1885 and reaffirmed in 1944) which would 
try to force churches and Christian people into a position of self right- 
eous judgement upon our fellow members and bring irreparable harm 
to our selves as well as to those who need us and, consquently, to the 
work of Christ's Kingdom. 

I believe we should find a way which would be in accord with Bap- 
tist principles, opposing dictation by any body to the local church and 
professing the New Testament as our soul guide. No where have I found 
the New Testament placing the sale of intoxicating drink above all other 
sins. The constitution of this Association recognizes the right of in- 
dividual churches to carry on the work of Christ's Kingdom and work 
with their members as they interpret the New Testment. 

Most earnestly I- believe we should seek to find a way which will be i^ 
keeping with the spirit and life of our Master who LOVED, rather than 
JUDGED and who patiently led, rather than expelled His imperfect dis- 
ciples. 

With deep respect and brotherly love for those who differ with me 
and the stand that our church takes regarding this matter, I make a 
motion that this Association: rescend the action taken in 1885 and re- 
affirmed in 1944 concerning the withdrawing a fellowship from indivi- 
duals and churches. 

Regarding the resolution passed by the 1944 meeting of the West 
Chowan Baptist Association, (3) "Henceforth this Association with- 
draw fellowship from any church that allows its members to engage in 
the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquor as a beverage," we. 
the members of Cashie Baptist church, Windsor, N. C, do hereby go 
on record as follows: 

We do firmly believe that the manufacture and sale of intoxicating 
liquor as a beverage is sinful, displeasing to our Lord, unbecoming to 
Christian members of His church and a reproach on the name we bear. 
However, we would not put this sin in a different catagory from that of 
other sins or deal with it in a different way. Any sin in the life of a 
church member surely grieves the Holy Spirit of God and should be 
dealt with in the way of our Master. All sin is grievous in the sight of 
God, not only the sale of intoxicating drinks, but every act of disobed- 
ience to the will of God in motive, word or deed. We are mindful of the 
words of our Lord, "Why beholdest thou the mote that is in thine 
brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?" 
(Matt. 7:3) "Judge not that you be not judged," (Matt. 7:1), and "He 
that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her." (John 
8:7) Wie would condemn sin in any form, but we would not judge our 



24 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



fellow Christians and withdraw fellowship from them. Rather we be- 
lieve that we, as individual members, should constantly come to God 
in humility and repentenance for our own sins of commission and om- 
ission and with the guidance of the Holy Spirit seek to help our bro- 
thers who sin. We take this position after much prayer and study of 
God's Word. We are in complete accord with the sentiment of the Asso- 
ciation in regard to the sinfulness of the liquor traffic, and do urge 
our member to abstain from the use of as well as from the manufac- 
ture and sale of intoxicating drinks as a beverage. But we reaffirm our 
faith in the persuasive power of the Gospel of Christ in regard to 
Christian witnessing and the work of the church. Jesus said, "I, if I 
be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me." (John 12:32) 
and "As the Father has sent Me, even so send I you." (John 20:21). 

R. L. Councilman, Pastor, W. L. Powell, Chr. Deacons, B. E. Grant, 
P. R. White, L. S. Mizelle, C. W. Byrum,W,. H. Lassiter, A. B. Bowen, 
O. W. Hale, E. L. Gatling, A. C. Mitchell, W. T. Tadlock, H. W. Early. 

29. Rev. E. R. Stewart arose and read and quoted passages of 
Scripture to justify the action of the Association, First he read from 
Paul's writing — "The Night is far spent, the day is at hand, let us 
therefore cast off the works of darkness, and put on the Armor of 
light. Let us walk honestly as in the day; not in rioting and drunken- 
ness, not in chambering and wantoness, not in strife and envying. But 
put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ and make not provisions for the flesh, 
to fulfill the lust there of. (Rom. 13: 12-14. 

Then Brother Stewart said "Surely when our church members set 
up the business of dispensing of beer, wine and liquors, they have pro- 
vided for the lust of the flesh" again he quoted "Have thou no fellow- 
ship with the unfruitful works of darkness". "Come ye out from among 
them and be ye a separate people Saith the Lord of Hosts" Then h& 
stated, that Jesus had given us scriptures for dealing with those in our 
churches who tresspass against us. 

"Moreover if thy brother shall tresspass against thee go and tell him 
his fault, between thee and him alone, If he shall hear thee thou hast 
gained thy brother, but if he will not hear thee, then take with thee 
one or two more that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every 
word may be established: And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it 
unto the church, but if he neglect to hear the church let him be unto 
thee as an heathern man, or as a publican. (Matt. 18:16-17). 

30. In answer to the question of authority of the Association to 
dictate to the churches as the Cashie statement implied. Rev. W. H. 
Hollowell, one of the committee on credentials stated that it has never 
been the policy of this body to dictate terms to any church or churches 
as to their faith or practice, but what we do claim the right to stipulate 
the terms by which any church or churches may enter or continue a 
part of this body. He further stated that the Association by adopting 
the report of the credentials committee would not assume the role of 
dictatorship but only reaffirming itself on stands previously taken. 

31. Oscar Creech explained that this resolution in question is noth- 
ing new in the West Chowan Association. It was first adopted in 1885; 
reaffirmed in 1905 to include selling liquors in despenseries; then re- 
affirmed again last year to include wines and beer. So the resolution of 
1944 is, an efford to maintain the policy of this Association during the 
past sixty years. Cashie church is our second oldest church in the 
Association and has upheld the resolution through all these years un- 
til now. 

32. Bro. Councilman named several evils that are found in churches 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



25 



today and stated that we should not deal with this evil in a different 
way from other evils. 

33. Walter Evans expressed surprise that any pastor would be a 
pastor of a church which condoned the evils mentioned by Bro. Coun- 
cilman, and said that he would be ashamed to be a pastor of such a 
church. He also pointed out that is was the weakest kind of argument 
to say we ought not to take our stand on this evil because there are 
some other evils. We are not to hide behind these other evils. He called 
attention to the fact that we were not discussing all evils but this par- 
•ticular one. 

34. The Moderator stated that he believed that the records in 
Bertie county, and was sure that the records in Hertford county would 
show that the majority or crimes committed was caused by strong 
drink, and that he felt that churches must stand against such an evil. 
He also pointed out that there was a difference between a man's pro- 
fession and his personal habits. 

35. Rev. Jones and Spaulding spoke in opposition to the resolu- 
tion, but later changed their attitude, and favored it. 

36. The majority of those who spoke felt that the Association could 
not afford to rescend the resolution. 

37. Motion was made and carried to adopt the report of the Cre- 
dentials Committee by large majority. 

38. Vote on motion to rescend the resolution No. 3 was called. The 
motion was defeated by standing vote by a large majority. 

39. R. L. Councilman then announced that the Cashie church was 
withdrawing from the Association. However at the suggestion of the 
Moderator, a coimmittee was appointed to work with the church to see 
if the matter in the church could not be straightened out. 

40. R. L.. Councilman requested that the statement setting forth 
the views of his church be incorporated in the minutes. This was 
agreed to by the Moderator, There being no objections. 

33. The following resolution was offered: 

Be it resolved that we, the West Chowan Association express our 
appreciation to Rev. Oscar Creech for rendering eleven years of splen- 
did service to the Association as Associational Clerk. 

We further wish to express our appreciation, not only for getting 
out tim'ely minutes, but for the excellent digest of the Associational, 
letters distributed at the annual sessions. 

We wish further to express our appreciation to him and the Ahoskie 
Baptist Church for entertaining this meeting of the Association.

association for each person enrolled in S. S. there are 7 that are not

nation because less than 50 per cent of our people are not christian. 
He challenged us to take Christ to all the world for the whole world is 
ready and doors on every hand will be open to us. "We have tried every 
thing else for peace and failed now try God." "We have the means to

How the West Chowan Association Came To Be 

1. The Kehukee Association was organized Novembe'r 9, 1769, (ac- 
cording to Paschall). Sand Run (then called Bertie) was the only West 
Chowan church in the organization. 

2. In 1806, the Kehukee was divided at the Roanoke River and 
north of the River in North Carolina became the Chowan Association. 
The following West Chowan churches were in the new organization: 
Ahoskie, Sandy Run, Be<thlehem, Cashie, Meherrin, Boss (then called 
Ross' Meeting House), Colerain (then called Wiccacon). 

3. In 18 83 the Chowan Association divided at the Chowan River 
and the three counties bettween the Chowan and Roanoke Rivers be- 
came the WIest Chowan Association. Twenty-eight churches formed 
the Association. 

The Kehukee was probably the fourth Baptist Association in Ameri- 
ca. The Philadelphia formed in 1707 was first; the Charleston (S. C.) 
in 1751; the Sandy Creek (around Sanford) in 1758; and the Kehukee 
in 1769.

Morning Session « , 

1. The first day of tlie meeting was held with the Meherrin Bapt- 
ist Church. The sixty-fourth annual session of the "West Chowan Asso. 
was called to order by the Moderator, Rev. Oscar Creech. J. L. Jones 
lead in singing "How Firm A Foundation". 

2. Fletcher Ford read a passage of scripture and offered prayer. 

3. The messengers were enrolled and the order of service adopt- 
ed. 

4. The Moderator made the following appointments of Committees 

Finance — ^N. A. Hoggard 

Time, Place and Preacher — T. J. Faulk, J. F. Roach C. T. 
I3oone. 

5. The new pastors were recognized as follows: Rev. J. B. Dailey, 
Jackson and Jarvis Teague, Potecasi. Miss Josephine Hair was also 
recognized as the new educational director of the Ahoskie Church. Al- 
so recognized were many visitors to the Association, among them were L 
L. Carpenter, Raleigh; W. K. McGee, of the Baptist Hospital in Win- 
ston-Salem, Rev. Bob Stephenson, Franklin, Va., Dr. Ira D. Knight, 
Williamston, and Rev. A. F. Yarborough of Weldon. 

6. The report on Denominational Literature was turned in by C. 
G. Maddrey. L. L. Capenter spoke on the report emphasising the im- 
portance of the biblical Recorder in the light of our Denomination: 

REPORT ON DENOMINATIONAL LITERATURE 

The report on the Biblical Recorder this year is very encouraging. 
The circulation of the paper during the past year has shown a good 
increase. The present circulation is approximately 38,000 which means 
a net gain for the past twelve months of approximately 5,000, For this 
increase we are profoundly grateful to God and to the pastors and lead- 
ers of North Carolina Baptist who have supported the paper enthusia- 
stically and have done what they couli to get it into the homes of the 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



15 



people. We want to express our appreciation to General Secretary M. 
A. Huggins and all the State workers for the great help which they 
have rendered. 

The paper has also shown good progress financially. It is now 
self-supporting and has been for a last year or two. However, we would 
not emphasize this matter too much for, after all, the important thing 
is to get out a good wholesome paper and to get it into the homes of 
our Baptist people, even if at times it might not be financially self- 
supporting. 

The RECORDER has three simple subscription plans: $2.00 a year 
for individual subscriptions; $1.50 a year in clubs — a minium of at 
least 3 subscriptions is required for every church reporting less than 
100 members and 5 subscriptions for every church reporting more than 
100 members; $1.20 a year for the budget or Every-family Plan — one 
subscription for each resident church family is required. We hope that 
pastors, superintendents, deacons, Training Union, and W. M. U. lead- 
ers will do what they can to encourage a good club in every Baptist 
church; or better still, to persuade the churches to inauguarate the 
Every-family Plan. At the present time there are 24 5 churches which 
have the Recorder in every resident family. There are 855 churches 
which have Recorder clubs. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. G. MADDREY 

7. T. J. Faulk brought an inspiring message on the American 
Bible Society. He urged the pastors and Churches to stand back of 
and support the great work of the Society. 

8. The Sunday School Report was presented by the Associational 
Superintendent, E. R. Stewart. His report carried with it the following 
recommendations: 

That a similiar program to that of the past year be followed. A 
census be taken in each community. Enlarge our organizations to meet 
the needs. Provide more space. Train more workers, go with a visi- 
tation program to reach the folks. 

That we strive to have as many to attend our Sunday School as 
the church has members. 

We further recommend that the pastors and superintendents call 
the officrs and teachers together and plan a year program. 

We recommend that each church plan and have a week's Vacation 
Bible School, and that a regular Visitation day be set apart. 

We believe that we have had one of the finest years of work yet 
in our Sunday Schools. Let us lift up our eyes and look upon the 
fields. May we reach the unreached and enlist them, win them, train 
them and use them. 

9. A Hymn, "Faith of Our Fathers" was sung. 

10. The clerk, P. T. Worrell presented and discussed briefly the 
Digest of Church Letters. 

11. The Hospital report was submitted by G. M. Singletary, who 
presented W. K. McGee of Winston-Salem. His message was earnest 
and forceful. 

REPORT ON BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

Our Baptist Hospital has had another full and fruitful year. In 
the past few years its facilities to care for the sick have been greatly 



16 



West Chowan 



Baptist Association 



increased. This is true for both those who have the money to pay for 
complete hospital care and those who have complicated afflictions 
which the hospitals and doctors in most communities are not prepared 
to care for. 

The Out-Patient Clinic is now working in its enlarged and better 
equipped quarters. It is prepared to do the highest type of work of 
examining the sick, prescribeing treatment for their ills, and giving 
some specialized treatments. After the examination, most of these can 
be treated back home by a local doctor or in a local hospital. There 
is now being addel to the clinic additional services in psychiatry and in 
eye and dental diseases. The cost for an examination in the Out-Pat- 
ient Clinic is $5.0 0, not including X-rays and special laboratory tests, 
for all who are able to pay it. This just about covers the actual cost 
to the hospital for the examination. The charges for the X-ray pict- 
ures and special tests are estimated at actual costs. Most people 
are able to pay these fees. In cases where they are not able to pay 
the whole fee, the balance is paid out of the Mother's Day Offering. 

Along with the Out-Patient Clinic, there is operated the Private 
Clinic for those who are able to pay the regular standard fees for med- 
ical care. 

The sick who come to these clinics and need to enter the Baptist 
Hospital for treatment are then admitted as bed patients, in so far as 
room permits. Biia to lack of space, it is impossible for the hospital 
to take care of all who need to be admitted. Because of this lack of 
space, our hospital has available a great deal of the finest medical 
skill which it is not able to use to relieve suffering. 

The Mother's Day Offering enables our hospital to care for those 
who do not have the money to pay their full bills. Those who are able 
to pay in full are expected to do so, because, if they fail to, it will 
take help from those who are in actual need. No person who is ex- 
amined in the Out Patient Clinic and no service patient who is admitted 
to the hospital is charged any doctor's bill at all, whether or not he pays 
his hospital bill. More than half of those who are cared for by our 
hospital are such service patients, and many of them are unable to pay 
anything at all. Our hospital does far more free service for the poor 
than any other denominational hospital in the South and stands among 
the first in America in the amount it does. Last year this free service 
cost the hospital over $16 7,000. We are happy that the churches of 
our association had a large share through our Mother's Day Offering 
in this great service. 

Our Baptist Hospital operates one of the best schools of nursing 
in the South. It seeks the finest young women, mentally, physically, 
and spiritually, to train for a Christian ministry of healing. It invites 
young women from our Baptist homes and churches who are interested 
in giving their lives to this important profession to consider going 
there for their training. The need for nurses is urgent. Any girl 18 
vears of age or over, with high school education, or better, is eligible to 
apply. She should write the Director, Nursing Department, North 
Carolina Baptist Hospital, Winston Salem, North Carolina. 

The new Department of Religion at our Baptist Hospital is being 
organized to render an effective spiritual ministery. This includes 
visitation and counsel among the sick and burdened irf the hospital, 
Bible instruction and a religious program for students, the effort to 
help create a Christian spirit through all the work of the hospital, and 
carrying to our churches the information concerning the work of our 
hospital. The ministry of this department is recognized by all con- 
nected with the hospital as an important part of the work. 



West Chowan Baptist Association

The urgent and outstanding need of our Baptist Hospital is the 
construction of a new south wing. This would provide 140 new beds, 
which we so greatly need, especially to care for the more seriously ill 
who need private rooms. Additional operating and delivery rooms and 
X-ray facilities would be included. It would provide adequate kit- 
chen and storage room, where the hospital is now seriously handi- 
capped for lack of space. Also, it would provide room for a laundry. 
It now costs the hospital over $50,000 a year to get its laundry done 
outside. The new wing would greatly increase the service of our hos- 
pital to the sick and would enable it to increase its income. 

The cost of the new south wing would be close to a million dollars. 
One gift of $200,00 already has been offered toward this, providied 
the construction is approved this year. Many who have been to our 
hospital as patients, or to take patients, know how badly this additional 
room is needed. The advisability of permitting the hospital to con- 
struct this building will be considered by our Baptist State Convention 
in its session at Asheville in November. The messengers form our 
association to the State Convention will have opportunity to vote 
their approval of this new building. We hope they will act favorably 
toward it. 

Respectfully submitted, 

G. M. SINGLETARY 

12. J. M. Duncan welcomed us to the Meherrin Church and made 
announcements relative to the dinner. 

13. The Annual Sermon was preached by J. U. Teague. He used 
Luke 19:10 as his scripture. His message centered on the question 
"Why Evangelize". He gave several reasons why we should; Millions 
are lost. Jesus commands it. The life of the Church depends on it; 
The safety of the world depends on it, and the population of heaven 
depends upon it. 

14. The morning session closed with prayer by J. B. Dailey. 

Afternoon Session . 

15. The afternoon session opened with the singing of "Lead On O 
King Eternal", and "Amazing Grace", Prayer was offered by J. F. 
Roach. 

17. A report on Chowan College was read by E. R. Stewart. As 
time would not permit the discussion of the report it was carried over 
to the next day. 

REPORT OP CHOWAN COLLEGE 

In 1944 at the annual meeting in Aulander it was decided to un- 
dertake to raise $100,000 to renovate and put in shape the college to 
be re-opened in 19 47. A committee of three was appointed to lead the 
way. It seems that this committee failed to get started. In 19 45 the 
burden was shifted to the pastors of the association to undertake the 
job. 

In November, 19 45 the trustees and pastors were called together 
in a banquet at Murfreesboro, At which time much discussion was 
made and earnest season of prayer abserved. It was decided to launch 
a three year program to raise $150,000 to be used to renovate the Old 
Buildings, to build a boys dormitory, and a science building. It was 
moved that a leader be chosen to lead the way. Rev Lonnie Sasser 
was nominated. A committee consisting of G. E. Gibbs, E. R. Stewart 
and Lowell K. Powell, was elected to contact Brother Sasser and fix the 



18 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



salary. This the committee did, fixing his salary at $2,700 and letting 
him continue to pastor Conway Church. He was chosen to lead us in 
the three years campaign. 

Other meetings were held by the pastors at Edenton and a joint 
meeting in January with the pastors of both associations attending at 
Elizabeth City, At this meeting, March was decided upon as the mon- 
th to present Chowan College to our churches. 

Then the question of moving Wake Forest College to Winston- 
Salem and making Wake Forest College a Junior College out of Cam 
pbell College, Wingate College, Chowan College, held up the movement. 
Then, October was set as the time to launch the campaign. 

During this time a committee consisting of the following brethern 
Dr. R. B. Wall, C. B. Williams, E. R. Stewart, Oscar Creech, G. E. 
Gibbs and Lonnie Sasser were appointed to visit the Secretary of our 
General Board and the school commission. This the committee did to 
let them know it was our purpose to reopen Chowan College, in the 
fall of 19 47. What we were undertaking to do was placed before them 
which they received cordially and pledged their support when we open 
the college. It was definately stated to us that we must have provided 
space to room 2 25 or 250 and a science building be built before it would 
be accepted as an accreted Junior College. 

Now things seemed to be moving along nicely until Mr. Claude 
Gaddy and Mr. Sylvester Green visited the college on August 15, along 
with a college group of trustees and pastors. They found the build- 
ing in fair condition an excellent Library but recommended that it 
would be best to put on a campaign to raise $5 00,000. This again 
halted our campaign. However the pastors in conference at Ahoskie 
discussed the matter and decided to undertake to double our first goal 
and undertake to raise $300,000. Also Mr. Green and Mr. Gaddy reco- 
mended that a committee be appointed to study the whole matter as 
to cost location etc. A committee was appointed consisting of Oscar 
Creech, W. H. Hollowell, E. R. Stewart, Lonnie Sasser and J. E. Lanier 
This committee made a trip to Buies Creek to study one of our finest 
Junior Colleges, Campebell, on September 18 and made a study of it 
with regards to its buildings, the cost of operation. Here we found a 
Junior College being carried on at very low cost to the pupils. 

In our investigation we have found some sentiment to move the 
institution but the sentiment is stronger to leave it where it is. We 
too have found a sentiment of indifference in some of the churches. 

At the meeting in November it was decided to raise $150,000 and 
later the pastors suggested goals, for the local churches. 

It was suggested that the churches of West Chowan raise 360,000 
and the churches of Chowan raise $40,000 and that Murfreesboro and 
Meherrin Church raise $50,000. Of course if we set our goal to raise 
$300,000 then double the amounts would be to raise either through 
the Churches or other sources. 

We have a college valued at $284,000 by the appraisers before it 
closed. 

The college is out of debt and has an endowment fund of over 
$30,000. 

It has buildings to room around 125 pupils. 

It has an accredited library. Connected with the college is 52 
acres of land. 

We have the area to draw from, we have the Baptist folks. The

Baptist folks have been blessed with money. 

We have the Baptist boys and girls, we have the heritage of 9 8 
years college in our midst. 

The parable of the tallents should be a lesson to us, we can use 
our Talents as did the man who had 5 and 2, or we can dig them into 
the ground as did the man who had one. 

In the light of this, we recommend that we go on raising the 
$150,000 through the churches as follows: $60,000 by the churches in 
West Chowan, $40,000 by the churches in Chowan and $50,000 by 
Murfreesboro and Meherrin Churches. 

We recommend that we undertake to raise another $15 0,000 from 
outside sources. 

We recommend that the campaign go on, asking all churches to 
cooperate and that work be begun at once on renovating the present 
plant. 

We recommend that a president be employed and plans go for- 
ward for reopening in 1947. 

We recommend that as soon as sufficent mony comes in, to begin 
the construction of the Boys dormatory. 

That the Alumni be asked to finance the building of the science 
building. 

That our people back up the reopening and operating of a stan- 
dard Junior College by assisting your general board.

18. The report on christian education was read by E. J, Rodgers. 
He then presented Dr. S. L. Blanton, who brought a strong appeal 
for Christian Education. 

REPOHT ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

History records the story of no age in which the world has stood in 
greater need of Christian Education. The keenest minds of our day 
seems to sound one note of solemn warning, the world must unite in 
understanding and brotherhood, or she will destroy herself. In a world 
that has become frightfully complicated we must learn how to live with 
our fellow man around the globe, and how to adjust our lives to our 
enviroment, in accord with the just and infalliable laws of the God who 
created the world and all that in it is. Education which is genuinely 
Christian, and only such education can produce the leaders who can 
bring the nations of the earth to such unity, and God's people to such 
adjustment. 

Here in North Carolina we have seven great Baptist Colleges: 
Wake Forest, Meredith, Mars Hill, Campbell, Wingate, Gardner-Webb, 
and Chowan. There are over 4,000 students enrolled in our North Caro- 
lina Baptist Colleges this year. The six of our Colleges which are now 
active are expanding, and pressing hard to meet the unprecidented de- 
mands of our young people for Christian Education. Chowan College 
has left her mark of beauty and Christian Culture on the life of our 
own section of North Carolina, and time will fail to erase it. The pro- 
gram for the new life of Chowan is now in progress. 

In the territory of our Southern Baptist Convention we have three 
great Seminaries: Southern Baptist at Louisville, Southwestern at 
Fort Worth, and New Orleans Baptist at New Orleans. The blessed

gospel of Jesus Christ is being proclaimed over the South Land and 
around the World by men of God, training for service in our Southern 
Baptist Seminaries. The Seminaries, as well as our Colleges are full 
to over flowing, and good men and women are being turned away for 
lack of room to accommodate them. 

Our North Carolina and Southern Baptist Institutions of Christian 
Education have served our Cause nobely. Now, under the guidance of 
God, working through wise leaders, these great Institutions are look- 
ing to the future. They have heard the call of a dying world for lead- 
ers who can take to the world the Saving Light Of Christ. The needs of 
our Baptist Instituions of Christian Education are gigantic, if they 
would meet the challenge of the day. Their honored history, and 
their opportunities for future service call for our sincerest prayers, our 
undivided interest, and our most gallant sacrifices.

2 4. The report of the Credentials Committee was presented and 
discussed briefly by W. H. Hollowell. 

REPORT OF CREDENTIALS COMMITTEE 

Whereas some of the churches in our Association appear to be 
somewhat confused and adverse in their thinking relative to the stand 
previously taken by this body on making and selling spirituous liquors, 
your committee on credentials offers the following report in which 
we hope to clarify, if possible, our present confusion and adverse opin- 
ions. To do this we desire: 

To call attention to the original resolutions as recorded in the 
minutes of this Association in the years 1885 and 1886. 

1885 — Quote "On motion, the order of business was suspended to 
allow Elder Williams to introduce the following preamble and reso- 
lutions, which were made the special order for tomorrow morning, 11 
o'clock. 

Whereas, we believe the Scriptures teach that the making, selling, 
and drinking to excess of spirituous liquors is an evil, (Prov. 20:1; 23: 
29, 30, 31, 32; Hos. 4:11; Hab. 2:15; 1st Thess. 5:22): therefore, 

Resolved, 1. That as an advisory body we request all the pastors 
in the Association to preach at least once a year upon the evils of in- 
temperance. 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



21 



Resolved, 2. That we advise the churches who have members 
that are guilty of making, selling or drinking to excess spirituous liq- 
uors as a beverage, to faithfully admonish, such members to desist 
from the evil. 

Resolved, 3. That we recommend the churches to withdraw 
fellowship from all members who, after faithful admonition, persist in 
being guilty of the above mentioned evil. 

Resolved, 4. That we have an annual report on the evils of 
strong drink." 

Second day. Quote — "The resolutions on Temprance introduced on 
yesterday by Elder Williams, were taken up for consideration, and dis- 
cussed by Elders Y/illiams, Scarborough, Hufham, Woodson, Bro. Cha- 
rles Bond, Elders R. T. Bryan, R. T. Vann and Bro. W. W. Mitchell. 
Pending the discussion, the following resolution was offered by Elder 
Wood as an amendment: 

Rasolved, That from this meeting henceforth this Association 
withdraw fellowship from any church that countenances the manufac- 
ture or sale of ardent spirits by its members. 

This resolution was accepted as an amendment to the original 
resolutions, which were adopted as amended." 

18 8 6 — After a clear and vigorous report on the evils of strong 
drink by B. B. Williams and said report having been discussed by Elder 
Williams, Bro. Gilliam. Elders Speight, Scarborough, Vann, Woodson, 
Bro. G. M. Fleetwood, Elder Jordan and brethern T. Q. Copeland and 
Langley Tayloe, Elder VanDeventer offered the following amendment: 

Quote — "Resolved, That we deem the manufacturer and sale of 
intoxicating liquors, as a beverage, as disorderly under the constitution. 

The ayes and noes being called for, the report as amended was 
adopted." 

The vote by roUcall of delegates. 5 voted in favor of adoption 
of resolution and 16 against. , 

2. In the more modern day of 19 05 when the dispensary became 
the dispensing center of alcoholic liquors, this Association added the 
following resolution to the foregoing. 

Quote — "Resolved (4) That it is the sense of this Association 
that selling intoxicating liquors through a dispensary is a violation of 
the spirit and letter of the resolution of our Constitution." 

3. In this still more modern day in which you and I live we have 
a multiplicity of distributing centers for beverage alcohol. For in- 
stance, wine and beer are no longer confined to liquor stores as of 
other days but are commonly sold in connection with other business. 
Therefore the following resolution was added in 19 44, 

Quote — "Resolved (5) That we deem the sale of beer and wine 
or selling liquors in ABC stores a violation of the spirit and letter of 
Resolution (3)" 

4. It is the sense of your committee that any person or persons 
who work in places where alcoholic liquors of any kind are sold stric- 
kly as a business within itself or any person of persons who obtain 
licenses to sell beer or wine or any other form of alcoholic beverages, 
in connection with their business are guilty of violating the above 
quoted resolution. 

We therefore recommend that the above resolution as quoted and 
interpreted be carried out to the letter for we cannot, we must not re- 
treat.

REPORT ON MINISTER'S RETIREMENT 

In the autumn of 1916, Dr. Wm. Lumnsford made an impassioned 
appeal before the Pastor's Conference of Tenn. for the adequate sup- 
port of the aged and retired ministers. 

In 1917, the Southern Baptist Convention appointed a commission 
of twelve honored ministers and laymen to study the great question of 
ministers relief, out of this action the relief and annuity board be- 
came a reality. 

This movement has gone forward at great speed. 

During the years of 1944-45 the Board issued 915 Certificates 
to applicant for membership in the Ministers Retirement plan of the 
several states of our convention. The latest available figures reveal 
that N. C. Baptist have 55 2 participants in the Retirement Fund and 
about 75 churches of this number we have in the "West Chowan Asso- 
ciation 16 pastors and about 35 churches enrolled. 

This plan of relief is clearly explained in the contract, one which 
is shared by the ministers, the church and the Convention. 

Your committee would urge every pastor, so for as in the indivi- 
dual case may be concerned, to become a member and endevour to lead 
his church or churches to support this most worthy cause. 

We hope that some time in the near future our state convention 
will be able to find the way and the means to establish a home for our 
old ministers. We believe that N. C. Baptist would be happy in the 
support of such a movement. 

Respectfully submitted, 
A. P. MUSTIAN 

30. The Associational Superintendent, Mrs. Julian Porter, brought 
a very encouraging report, on the work of the Woman's Missionary 
Society, and discussed the report. Progress was noted along various 
lines. She told us that this was a day of expectancy and a day for 
advance. 

31. J. L. Jones rendered a special number in song. 

32. Bonnie Sasser submitted the report on Missions, and introduced 
Rev. Earl L. Bradley, who spoke forcefully on the need of Missions in 
a time like this. He said, "We need to be revived, to become King- 
dom Builders. We must meet the challenge. We must sacrifice and 
forget ourselves." 

REPORT ON STATE MISSIONS 

The aim or purpose of State Missions is a three fold one. In the 
first place, those activities are promoted which develop a Christian state 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



23 



that is evangelism and training. Winning the lost and teaching the 
"found" develop Christian citizenship. In the second place, an aggres- 
sive State Mission program is essential to the growth of the denomi- 
nation, and to its morale. In the third place, all missions — State, 
Home and Foreign — all schools, colleges and seminaries, and all bene- 
volent agencies depend upon State Missions as their base of supplies. 
For Example, through State Missions people are won, churches are 
established, and the membership trained. As the churches grow, and 
their membership becomes informed, they in turn support not alone 
State Missions but through the Baptist program all missions, all edu- 
cation, and all benevolence. 

As the denomination has grown, largely because of the efforts of 
the State Mission forces, the scope and task of State Missions has con- 
stantly increased. 

In many states of the Southland perhaps one half or more of our 
present churches are the trophies of State Missions. And even now 
there are expanding areas in and around our towns and cities waiting 
for the appearance of a State Missionary. Likewise hundreds of our 
churches in the rural areas need to be relocated on hard-surfaced high- 
ways and their plants enlarged. Given more State Mission money and 
more workers, many desirable changes would occur in the next decade. 

Another task presented State Missions with a challenge which it 
has partially met. As the churches multiplied, and as our membership 
grew, there arose the need for the teaching and training of these mem- 
bers. Hence came the departments of Sunday School and of Training 
Union as additions to the well established work of State Missions re>- 
ferred to above. Then with the great increase of students in the col- 
leges, both state and denominational, there developed the need for 
what is now the Baptist Student Union. These departments are now 
considered a large part of the State Mission task; and in cooperation 
with the Sunday School Board, these popular educational and train- 
ing programs are reaching out into the small and remote country 
churches. 

More recently the task and scope of State Missions has been en- 
larged so as to provide associational district missionaries. Many of 
our churches with a membership of five hundred or more now proV 
vide an educational director or pastor's assistant. But what of those 
churches that cannot afford even a full time pastor? These associat- 
ional missionaries work as pastors at large, or as educational directors 
at large, providing, to some extent at least, that help and guidance 
which the smaller churches so sorely need. In many states a large part 
of the total State Mission budget is devoted to this purpose. 

Also there has been recognized in recent years the need for ad- 
ditional training for ministers already in service. Hundreds of them 
have not had the privilege of attending college or seminary. To meet 
this need schools for pastors, running for weeks, and in some instan- 
ces for six weeks, have been inauguarated.

REPORT ON HOME MISSIONS 

Dr. J. B. Lawrence, secretary of the Home Mission Board, says: 
"The strategic point of approach to this world task is the homeland. 
Keep the homeland evangelized and mobilized for service and we have 
the hope and the assuranc of a world evangelization. 

Dr. W. R. White in his "Re-Statement of Missions" says that 



24 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



world conditions have left a displeased and upset homeland, that Rome 
is going after the Negroes, that Russia is championing the cause of 
little nations, and that the challenge to Home Missions today to evan- 
gelize the homeland is great. 

The man without a chance, underprivileged, cut off by language 
barriers, tenant farmers segregated by poverty, migrant workers, those 
in isolated sections, and those in congested city areas, Negroes, and 
others in our homeland, cliallege the best there is in us. Home Missi- 
ons must answer the challege. 

The Spirit of the Home Mission Board is to "help where help is 
needed." Many of our strongest churches in the South were mission 
station operated by the help of Home Missions in an earlier day. Many 
churches now helped by tiie Home Mission Board will grow into large 
and potent churches. A little help now means a great future for some 
community. 

The Home Mission Board has work among Spanish-speaking Am- 
ericans (Mexicans), Indians, French, Italians, Chinese, and other lan- 
guage groups. There are missions centers, city and rural missions, work 
among the deaf and work in Panama, Costa Rica, and the Canal Zone, 
in addition to miscellaneous special mission enterprises. The Home 
Mission Board sponsors work in 587 churches and missions and needs 
327 more. It has missionaries and workers and needs 369 more. It 
needs more than two million dollars for mission properties and over 
a million dollars a year for operaton. The Board is now housed in 
its own building at 161 Spring Street, N. W., Atlanta, Georgia. 

Keep Home Missions vigorous as a good springboard for world 
evangelization. 

Respectfully submitted, 
LONNIE SASSER 

REPORT ON FOREIGN MISSIONS 

During the first one hundred years of its existence, the Foreign 
Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention appointed 1347 mis- 
sionaries to foreign fields, including 4 4 appointed at its April meeting 
this year. These missionaries have wrought in twenty nations. At the 
close of the century five and half million Baptist were represented by 
five and a half hundred missionaries. 

As we enter the second century we face open doors and many ad- 
versaries. Some of the favorable conditions are accelerated transpor- 
tation; a more compact world; a more intimate acquaintance with the 
whole world; the appeal from various nations for preachers, teachers, 
medical missionaries, and others who can help rebuild wrecked coun- 
tries; growing literacy; opportunities for giving relief; and the failure 
of human philosophies and religion. 

Some of the adversaries are our own indifferences,, Roman Catho- 
licism, Communism, Mohammedanism, inconsistent living of professed 
Christians in tiiis and other lands, racial and religious tensions, nat- 
ional and international conflicts. 

As we turn to war-stricken lands we enter open doors with cour- 
age and confidence in the power of the gospel to triumph over all ad- 
versaries. We still believe that the name of Christ is the only name 
given under heaven among men whereby we must be saved. Our mes- 
sage for the whole world is Redemption; Repentance, Regeneration, and 
Resurrection power in living and serving. This gospel is not only to 
be proclaimed everywhere, but is to be confirmed by godly lives and 
compassionate hearts. The only way to meet the futile and fatuous 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



25 



faiths of a sinning, suffering world is not by compromising and dilut- 
ing the Word committed to us, but by preaching, teaching, and exem- 
plifying the gospel of our holy and loving God. Open doors consti- 
tute our obligation to obey the command of our Savior and Lord and, 
as speedily as possible, make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in 
the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and tea- 
ching them to observe all things whatsover the Lord has commanded 
us. 

In war devastated areas there is a tremendous job of rehabilitat- 
ion, providing buildings and equipment for churches, schools, hospitals 
missionary homes. We must in every land reinforce our missionary 
program. Instead of 560 missionaries, we should have 1,000 mission- 
aries on the field within the next twelve months. Men and money are 
greatly needed for this urgent task. The Foreign Mission Board joins 
heartily in the decision of the Miami Convention to fortify and enlarge 
the Cooperative Program. 

Already Southern Baptist missionaries are returning to China as 
rapidly as transportation facilities across the Pacific and in China 
enable them to get to their fields. Some forty missionaries have al- 
ready gone to China. Every mail brings a plea from Africa — a new 
continent since the people in that land have become acquainted with 
the whole world — begging for reinforcements. Our missionaries there 
are breaking under the terrific load. In every one of our mission 
fields we desperately need more missionaries. 

We are face to face as never before with the choice — one world 
or none. Life and death have been set before us. The choice is ours 
between the annihilating power of the atomic bomb or the redemptive 
power of the Cross of Christ. Which shall it be?

41. The Orphanage Report was turned in by J. U. Teague, who 
presented W. C. Reed of Kinston. He gave some glimpses of the chil- 
dren in the orphanage. 

REPORT ON THE ORPHANAGE 

During the past year nearly 800 children have been taken care of 
through the three cxiannels of our orphanage, namely the Mill's Home. 
The Kenedy Home and through Mothers Aid and Boarding Homes, and 
this has been done at considerable increased cost. The cost now is 
approximately $700.00 per day. 

There is not room to care for all those who apply; therefore hun- 
dreds are now on the waiting list to be admitted as soon as room is 
made available. But fortunately for the underprivileged children of 
N. C. the Trustees of our Baptist Orphanage had the foresight to be 
prepared by enlarging its child caring facilities through its "foster 
Home Program," Our orphanage is the only licensed orphanage in the 
state to take care of children outside of the institution. By enlarg- 
ing the foster home program, more children can be cared for, such as 
very young children, the physically handicapped children, and nervous 
shy and timid children. Many good homes are being opened to these 
unfortunate children inspite of the increased cost of living and other 
difficulties. Every child should have a place around some fireside pro- 
vided the right home can be found for the right child. To secure this 
end the "Foster Home Program" is striving. 

There has been quite an expansion in our Social Service Depart- 
ment under the direction of Mrs. Louise L. Blake during the last year 
or so with four new workers added to the case work staff. Our Or<- 
phanage appeals to the best in all of us.

42. The Associational Historian, E. R. Stewart read his report. 

HISTORIANS REPORT 

We have had another good year. There has not been so much con- 
struction work done to scarcity of the material, but most Churches 
have been accumulating funds, and making plans for the future. Below 
we record some of the achievements. 

Rev. Fletcher Ford reports that Severn has a standard Sunday 
School, two new classes organized. The best year financially in the 
history of the church. 48 per cent of all contributions given to mis- 
sions. Tiie Sunday School led the association in contributions to the 
orphanage. The church adopted rotation plan for deacons. 

Roberts Chapel increased contributions by $500. Church has start- 
ed a fund for basement improvements, providing more space for Sun- 
day School classes. 

Rev. E. J. Rogers reports that the Elam Church there is a repair 
and building program on. We have had good revivals in the Church 
and feel encouraged about the work. 

Ross Church improved her grounds by hauling a hundred loads 
of dirt and putting a dressing of crushed rocks on it. Plans are on the 
way for installing electric lights. 

Ross, Elm Grove and Capeharts Churches purchased 100 new song 
books each "The Service Hymnal." 

Capehart's raised $85 4 to renovate the inside of the Church. 

Elm Grove purchased a new piano at a cost of $655.00, which was 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



27 



dedicated on October 20. 

Greens Cross Crurch has been raising funds to build Educational 
rooms. Also the Parsonage was repaired and painted inside and out- 
side. All four churches held :5pring and fail revivals. The work goes 
on well. Progress has been made in most every way. 

Rev. G. D. Leggett reports that Sioloam Church has extended a 
call to Rev. E. C. Sexton to become pastor November 1, succeeding Rev. 
J. E, Copeland who has been supplying. The church has been painted 
new floors laid, seats painted, and money in hand to replace old win- 
dows with new ones at a cost of $210.00. 

Rev. W. H. Hollowell reports that Merry Hill has beautified its 
church auditorium on the inside by painting and installing electric 
light fixtures. 

Askewville has put down new carpet in the auditorium of its 
church. 

Rev. Oscar Creech reports the following: We employed our first 
educational director, the first of the year, Miss Josephine Hair of S. 
C. She has made a fine beginning with us. Chimes with loud speakers 
were presented to our church this year by Mr. J. S. Leary and family 
in memory of their son, J. Stanley, Jr. who lost his life in World War II 
This has been a year of progress with us in most respects. 

Rev. Lonnie Sasser reports that the church of Conway has raised 
$20,000 for a new church building. 

Rev. T. N. Cooper reports $9,200 raised at Rich Square for a new 
building. At Woodland $5,000 has been raised for a new building. 

Harrellsville church reports $14,000 raised for a new building. 

Rev. J. E. Lanier reports having painted Buckhorn Church Inside 
and outside. At St. John's they have put in chairs for the Begin- 
ners Department and refloored the church. 

The Colerain church reports a very good year. Among other things 
the church has had a new Hammond Organ installed, and it adds much 
to the spirit of worship in the church. 

New bath rooms have been added to the church. The church also 
reports that it has had the best D. V. B, S. it has ever had. There were 
136 enrolled with an average attendance of 121 for two weeks. The 
average attendance in Sunday School has 50 more than last year. 

We wish to siay that these are some of the facts that are worthy 
to be recorded. Some churches made no report but most churches 
have made progress. Many of the churches are preparing to enlarge 
their church plant. 

It has been a fine year for preparation for a large work in our asso- 
ciation.

for Rev. Richard Lloyd, was conducted by J. E. Lanier. 

IN MEMORIAM — REV. RICHARD LLOYD 

As an Association we pause in our work, to pay tribute to one of 
our faithful, loyal and consecrated pastors who passed on to his heaven- 
ly home, since we met in our annual session one year ago, The Rev. 
Richard Lloyd. Brother Lloyd came to the West Chowan Association 
January 192 9, as pastor of Jackson and Mt. Carmel churches. During 



28 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



the time of his ministery in our Association he served as pastor at Mt. 
Tabor and Potecasi. For some time before his going, he carried on his 
work under the handicap of failing health. On December the 16, 1945 
he was stricken with a second cerebral hemorage from which he never 
recovered. He made a valiant fight to regain his health, but when it 
was made clear to him that his earthly ministry was fast drawing to 
a close, he peacefully resigned himself to the will of his Lord. On the 
morning of September the 17, 1946 he gently and calmly fell to sleep. 

The funeral services were held at the home of Mrs. Lloyd's brother 
at Marion Station Maryland, where they made their home since April. 
Services were conducted by the Rev. E. E. White, a classmate, and the 
Rev. Birnstead of Accomac Virginia. The burial was in Parel cemetery 
at Marion Station Maryland. 

Brother Lloyd was born in Newton Wales, June the 5, 1880. In 
1901 he came to tbe United States and lived in Chicago until 1909. 
During his stay in Chicago, he was called to the gospel ministry. He 
took special training for his work at the University of Chicago and 
Crozer Theological Seminary. Four very outstanding events took place 
in his life in 1912: he obtained his naturalization papers, graduated 
from Seminary, ordained to the ministery and his marriage. 

The churches he served as pastor, other than those in the West 
Chowan Association, are Broadway, Only, Exmore, and Scottsburg all 
churches of Virginia. 

Immediately following his graduation from Crozer Seminary he 
was married on June the 5, 1912 to Miss Elizabeth Macon Carver of 
Marion Station Maryland. In her, he found a faithful, sympathetic and 
helpful, companion. 

Brother Lloyd was a wise, hard working faithful pastor. One with 
the true shepherd heart. Not only untiring on his own field of work but 
loyal to all denominational causes and institutions. In addition to his 
religious duties he found time to take active part in the civic and ben- 
evolent activities of the communities in which he lived. 

We shall miss his fellowship as a fellow pastor in our Association. 
And we feel very keenly the loss of his cooperative attitude and con- 
genial spirit in our pastor's Conferences and all other Associational 
meetings. 

"The worker dies, but the work goes on, 
The laborers depart, but the vinyard remains. 
The stars go down, but they will rise again 
on some other shore." 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN E. LANIER

How the West Chowan Association Came To Be 

1. The Kehukee Association was organized November 9, 1769, (ac- 
cording to Paschall). Sand Run (then called Bertie) was the only West 
Chowan church in the organization. 

2. In 180 6, the Kehukee was divided at the Roanoke River and 
north of the River in North Carolina became the Chowan Association, 
The following West Chowan churches were in the new organization: 
Ahoskie, Sandy Run, Bethlehem, Cashie, Meherrin, Boss (then called. 
Ross' Meeting House), Colerain (then called Wiccacon). 

3. In 18 8 3 the Chowan Association divided at the Chowan River 
and the three counties between the Chowan and Roanoke Rivers be- 
came the West Chowan Association. Twenty-eight churches formed 
the Association. 

The Kehukee was probably the fourth Baptist Association in Ameri- 
ca. The Philadelphia formed in 1707 was first; the Charleston (S. C.) 
in 1751; the Sandy Creek (around Sanford) in 1758; and the Kehukee 
in 1769.

West Chowan Baptist Association 11 



CONSTITUTION 

NAME 

Article 1. This body shall b© known as the North Carolina West 
Chowan Baptist Association. 

MEMBERSHIP 

Article 2. It shall be composed of messengers elected by the 
churches connected with this body and all ordained ministers who are 
members or pastors of said churches, together with the officers of this 
Association, and chairmen of all standing committees. Each church of 
one hundred members and under shall be entitled to two messengers, 
and for each additional one hundred members, an additional messen- 
ger; provided that no church shall have more than four messangers. 

OBJECTS 

Article) 3. The object shall be to devise and recommend measures 
for increasing the harmony, the intelligence and spiritual power of the 
churches, and for developing and directing their energies, their re- 
sources and their gifts, in advancing the Redeemer's Kingdom on 
earth. 

POWERS AND PREROGATIVES 

Article 4. The Association shall have no power to infringe upon 
the sovereignty or rights of the churches. It is neither an ecclesiastical 
nor legislative council, nor court of appeal. It may advise the churches 
and recommend measures of usefulness for their adoption, but cannot 
bind them in any way. Yet, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and 
intelligence of the body, it may justify claims for itself, for its objects, 
and for its recommendations the very highest consideration and regard. 

Article 5. The Association may dissolve connection with any church 
that becomes heterodox in doctrine, or disorderly in practice or that 
fails to represent itself, either by messenger or letter, more than two 
successive sessions, without sufficient reason, or that treats with con- 
tempt its objects and requirements, upon application of a church for 
dismission. 

RIGHTS OF CHURCHES 

Article 6. Each individual church shall hold and exercise all the 
functions of an independant church of Jesus Christ. As constituent 
members of this Association, the churches shall have the right to ad- 
vise, when desired, in case of difficulty, and suggest plans of uneful- 
nesB to be adopted. It shall be the undisputed privilege of any church 
to withdraw its membership from this Association whenever it shall so 
elect. 

DUTIES OF CHURCJHES 

Article 7. It shall be the duty of the churches to appoint as mes- 
sengers as far as practicable, their most capable members, to require 
their attendance, and to send by them a contribution to the Association 
fund to pay for printing the Minutes and other necessary expenses. 

Article 8. It shall be the duty of each church to send an annual 
letter to the Association giving: (1) locality; (2) name of its pastor 
and clerk and their respective postoffices; (3) the Sabbaths of regular 
service; (4) church statistics, including the number baptised, received 
by letter, restored, dismissed, deceased, expelled and aggregate mem- 
bership, male and female; (5) Sabbath school statistics; (6) amount

contributed to benevolent objects and the Association fund; (7) names 
or messengers and alternate's; (8) and other information of special 
importance. 

ORGANIZATION

SPECIAL JOINT MEETING OF CHOWAN AND WEST 
CHOWAN ASSOCIATIONS— MARCH 18, 1947

5. Oscar Creech was elected Moderator, Outlaw and Wor- 
rell as Clerks. 

6. Brother Outlaw read the resolution. Many joined in the^ 
discussion. Much of the early discussion hinged on the right 
of the session to discuss anything other than the Resolution. 
The Moderator finally ruled that we were gathered today to 
accept or reject the recommendation of the Executive Com- 
mittee. Ronald Wall and Finalator were very outspoken in 
their support of the recommendation. 

7. Lonnie Sasser, a large delegation from Murfreesboro, 
and many former students were very outspoken in their op- 
position. 

8. When the question was finally called a large majority of 
those present yoted in opposition. There were 15 votes cast 
in favor of recommendation. 

9. The messengers then pledged their support to the cam- 
paign to reopen the College.

FOREIGN MISSIONS 

Mission Report oj the West Chowan Association Oct. 28, 1947 

The urgency of the hour calls for an all out, unconditional 
surrender of the life of every Christian in order that we may 
give to the world the only hope, Jesus Christ. We are living in 
a great day of decision and opportunity. We have seen great 
progress in every material realm, but the moral and spiritual 
forces have lagged. 

God has a program — Go, Preach, Teach, Heal! We have not 
done that as we should. God also has a plan; namely, tithed 
and offering. We have not given Him a chance in our posses- 
sions, thereby missing the joy of the fullness of God. The doors 
of the world are wide open and the Holy Spirit is calling to 
us to measure up to the challenge and enter in with the Gos- 
pel of peace and hops. The message which Isaiah gave to Israel 
is indeed fitting today: 

"Enlarge the curtains of thy tent, and let them stretch 
forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not. len 
gthen thy coords and strengthen thy stakes" — Isaiah 
54:2. 

The Foreign Mission Board has 565 active missionaries 
working on 19 fields. During the year 1946 there were 62 new' 
missionaries appointed, and 94 retired, who receivd financial 
support from the Board. This brings the total to 659. 

Our missionaries are confronted with the work of Relief 
and Rehabiliation, and the Board has done much to give as- 
sistance to tens of thousands of destitute people in China, Jap- 
an, and Europe. Thousands of Baptist families, pastors, Bible 
women, teachers, and other Christian workers have been lift- 
ed from a low subsistence level. Children from Baptist homes 
have been put back in schools. 

Dr. Rankin, Secretary of the Foreign Mission Board, says 
"The achievements gf the Board have accomplished under the 
handicap of sharp rises of prices in all lands, and violent in- 
flation in the Orient. The Board has over 100 fully prepared 
Volunteers ready for appointment in 1947 and has the prospect 
of at least 150 in 1948. It is probable that many of these volun- 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



19 



teers will have to be refused because the Board has reached 
the limit in its operational budget, on the basis of present re- 
ceipts from the Cooperative Program." What shall be our 
answer to these fine young people that are ready to go out as 
soldiers of the Cross of Jesus Christ? 

There is a way, and if we are to "lengthen our cords", we 
will seek to enlist one million tithers which will bring into the 
"Storehouse" the funds to free our Mission Board to send 500 
more missionaries. We must realize that the Lottie Moon Chri- 
stmas offering, which has reached nearly one and a half mil- 
lion dollard for 1946, will help in the operating funds as well 
as build and equip many stragic places. These two means of 
enlarging our long-range program of world missions advance 
together. It is not a case of one or the other. The Foreign Mis-< 
sion Program is built on both the Cooperative Program and the 
Lottie Moon Christmas offering. The increase of the one will 
stimulate the other. May God help us to be diligent and "Spare 
not". 

HOME MISSIONS 

We need to "enlarge the place of thy habitation", to lead 
America to Christ and His Way of .Life. To evangelize America 
means more than sending out missionaries, establishing mis- 
sion stations, and making and baptizing disciples. These are 
important and essential, but they are by no means of that we 
are to do if we would win America. 

To Christianize America means to bring the civilization 
of our country under the sovereignty of Christ; it means to 
bring Christian influence to bear on the immigrant popula- 
tion in our industrial centers, to help racial and underprivile- 
ged groups to realize what the way of Christ means; to build 
vital, virile, functioning New Testament Churches throughout 
the land; to develop Christian community life in city and 
country; to fence against the inroads of spiritual disintegration; 
to generate spiritual enthusiasm and transfuse all the life for- 
ces of America. 

There are 24,000,000 people in our Southern Baptist Ter- 
ritory who are unchurched. We have 920 missionaries and sum- 
mer workers busy at the homeland task. They reported 27,474 
conversions among the Italians, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, 
and other nationalities in our midst. 

STATE MISSIONS 

The work of the North Carolina Mission Board is to "Stre- 
ngthen the stakes" by fostering a program of evangelism and 
enlistment. The work has a five-fold purpose: 



20 West Chowan Baptist Association 



1. Missions 

This department has three divisions: Field work, Evan- 
gelism, and Negro Work. 

2. Training Activities 

Here we also find three divisions: Sunday School, with 
a Secretary to assist our churches in the task of teach- 
ing the Word. Training Union, with Secretary, and 
Student Activities. 

3: Benevolences — Orphanage, Hospital, and Ministers' 
Relief. 

4: Education — Educational Institutions, and Ministerial 
Education. 

5. Department of Woman's Missionary Union: 

We have about 600^000 Baptist in the State, and if 
we will, we can put on an aggressive program of Evan- 
gelism, Education, and Training that will save North 
Carolina for Christ. 

What have we done? Last year the per capita gifts to mis- 
sions was $4.70, and to local objects $15.05. The total per capita 
gifts amounting to $19.75. 

The challenge to West Chowan Association as we "stren- 
gthen our stakes" and strengthen our churches is that we may 
catch a vision of our need and the lost and unenlisted people 
in our immediate environs. Should we not be alarmed when we 
consider the fact that last year 504 churches reported no bap- 
tism? Is it not equally alarming that 135 churches failed to 
give to a single object fostered by our convention? Let us look 
at our own Association. Last year 57 churches reported 359 
conversions. It took 16,118 members to win that many, or 45 
to win one. 

This year, 1947, we reported 11,402 members and 377 bap- 
tisms with 31 to win one. Seven churches no Baptisms. 

In 1946 we gave to missions $85,769.28 and to local work 
$145,944.11. Surely God is calling us to strengthen the home 
iDase and the local church. 

Your committee would make one recommendation, that 
an associational missionary be called to assist our churches and 
pastors in the work of promoting the Cause of the Kingdom., 
We recommend that a committee be appointed to act with the 
executive committee of the West Chowan Association to draw 
up plans and formulate a suitable program. We suggest that 
the State Board be asked to assise in paying the Missionary's 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



1 21 



salary and that the remaining amount be apportioned out a- 
mong the 57 churches of the Association. 

Respectfully submitted, 
J. B. D alley, Chairman 

8. The recommendation to secure an Associational Mission- 
ary was adopted. 

9. On account of threating weather, at the request of the 
host church, we were adjourned for lunch. 

EVENING SESSION 

Vice Moderator, Herbert Jenkins, Presiding 

10. After the singing of Hymn "Jesus Shall Reign", Fletcher 
Ford preached the Annual Sermon. His message was appre- 
ciated by a large congregation. He centered his remarks a 
round the scripture, "Quit Living Like Pagans" 1 Sam. 4:9. 

11. The report on the Orphanage was presented by T. N. 
Cooper. 

REPORT ON THE ORPHANAGE 

Why an Orphanage? There are definite reasons why we 
have to have the orphanage, among these are Poverty, Poor 
Health, Illiteracy and Instability in the Home. The Wrecked 
Homes are the Chief Concern. 

"There are over a thousand children in the orphanages of 
North Carolina who have both parents living." 

Our greatest service as an orphanage should be to make) 
it possible for parents and children to help themselves. In ad- 
dition to our inside orphanage work, we must help preserve 
and improve our homes that are in danger of breaking down. 
We helped adjust over four hundred children last year. 

In this period of high cost of building, are stressing the 
boarding home care. The children are placed in good homes 
under the care of our orphanage. 

"Last year the orphanage cared for seven hundred children 
sixty of these were cared for in Boarding Homes and fifty by 
Mothers Aid. Case work service was made available to 1,107 
children. This was made possible through loyalty of the Bap- 
tist Denomination and other friends who month by month 
and at Thanksgiving time give to the support of these children 
as directed by Christ. In addition to cash offerings, the orph- 
anage at all times can use canned goods and other commodities 
need for the daily support of a large family.

West Chowan Baptist Association 



Once more we pledge our support to this institution that 
is dedicated to the one task of making strong, clean, christian 
men and women out of our boys and girls under our care". 

Respectfully submitted, 
Thos. N. Coooper 

12. G. M. Singletary, Associational Director, brought in 
the B. T. U. Report and discussed it briefly. At the close of his 
remarks he tendered his resignation as Director as he has mo- 
ved into the Chowan Association. 

13. The W. M. U. Report was presented and discussed by 
the Associational Superintendent, Mrs. Julian Porter. She pre- 
sented several phases of the work which was very encourag- 
ing. 

14. Discussion on Chowan College was called for and Craig 
Revelle, Secretary for the trustees, brought the following re- 
solution: 

WHEREAS, at a meeting of the Board of Trustees of Cho- 
wan College held 6th day of January, 1947, said Board reques- 
ted a joint meeting of the Chowan and West Chowan Associa- 
tions to advise what disposition to make of Chowan College 
because the Board had no means whereby to reopen the same; 
and 

WHEREAS, at a joint meeting of said Associations held at 
Edenton on the 18th day of March, 1947, said meeting took no 
action other thari to direct this Board to reopen the College and 
assure this Board that said Association would cooperate in 
such as the Board of Trustees might do or undertake to for 
the reopening of the School; and 

WHEREAS, this Board thereupon made a survey by a fact 
finding committee in order to determine the requirements for 
tine opening of the College as a standard Junior College and 
the report of said committee, a copy of which is hereby at- 
tached and made a part hereof, was duly approved by the 
Board of Trustees, and it was therefore determined by the 
Board to reopen the College upon the churches pledging $15,- 
thousand per year for a period of five years to cover the es- 
timated operational defecit; and 

WHEREAS, in April, 1947, the Board requested the chur- 
ches of the two Associations to act upon the requests for pled- 
ges of Fifteen thousand dollars per year for a period of five 
years; and 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



23 



WHEREAS, since April 24, 1947, the churches have re- 
ported written pledges totaling only $6,011.50 dollars; and 

WHEREAS, it is the opinion of this hoard based upon the 
facts hereinbefore set forth, that the churches of the Chowan 
and West Chowan Associations have not met the necessities 
of the Board for funds to reopen the College; and 

WHEREAS, the physical property of the College is rapidly 
detoriating and should be either put to early uses or be dis- 
posed of: 

Now, therefore, be it resolved by the Board of Trustees 
of Chowan College: 

RESOLVED FIRST that the West Chowan Association be 
requested to authorize said board to make such disposition of 
the physical property and convert its other assets into cash 
in such manner and on such terms as said Board deems best, 
and upon such disposal to hold the proceeds therefrom for 
such purposes as the Chowan and West Chowan Associations 
may hereafter determine. 

RESOLVED SECOND that a copy of these resolutions be 
presented to the West Chowan Association at its annual meet- 
ing for 1947 by a committee for this Board for action by said 
Association. 

15. Lonnie Sasser gave history of the whole movement and 
stated that he had promises of $12,260, for the first year and 
$11,260 for the rest of the years and made a motion that the 
trustees and Campaign Director be instructed to proceed and 
reopen the college in 1948. I 

16. Many of the preachers, laymen and alumnae joined in 
a spirited discussion of the resolution and the Motion. 

17. W. H. Hollo well proposed an amendment to the motion: 
That the $90,000 needed to reopen the College be raised, and 
then the Churches will raise the $15,000 needed for operation. 

18. Both the original motion and the amendments carried 
unanimously. 

19. This Session was Closed with prayer.

22. Fletcher Ford turned in the report on Denominational 
Literature. G. W. Bullard brought a very fine message on the 
subject. 

REPORT ON DENOMINATIONAL LITERATURE 

Baptist have, compelling reasons for giving major attention 
to religious literature. We believe in personal responsibility 
and voluntary action. This makes imperative spiritual know- 
ledge, an enlightened conscience, moral convictions, and in- 
telligent comprehension of the issues of our times. Again we 
are involved in a raging war, the war of ideas. There is a ceas- 
less struggle between the ideas of totalitaranism and democ- 
racy, collectivism and free enterprise, authoritarianism and 
freedom, extreme nationalism and sane internationalism, mil- 
itaristic domination and harmonious co-operation, secularism 
and spiritual values, indulgence and self control, formalism and 
faith, work and grace, the kingdom of satan and the kingdam 
of Christ. 

The printed page is the chief medium of this warfare of 
ideas. And the welfare of humanity depends on the ideas that 
control the world. Finally, the forces of evil are exploiting 
the field of literature with ingenious, organized, and concen- 
trated power. The antidote for this peril is the propagation of 
truth, the truth of Christianity. Baptist must awake to the ur- 
gent value of religious literature in the fulfillment of their 
mission. 

The Sunday School Board publishes sixty periodicals. They 
are designed to encourage Bible study, to lead to personal faith 
in Christ, to cultivate christian character and consecration, to 
develope faithful workers and skillful leaders in our churches, 
and to motivate worthy participation in the cause of world re 
demption. The combined circulation of these periodicals in 
Ninteen hundred and forty-six was twenty eight million nine 
hundred eighty-six thousand eight hundred and fifty-one. 

Two periodicals that mean much to the promotion of For- 
eign Missions and Home Missions and published by these re- 
spective Boards are the Commission and Southern Baptist 
Home Mission. Both magazines have large circulations and are 
a great blessing to the work. We should encourage our people 
to subscribe to them in large numbers. 

The report of the BIBLICAL RECORDER, our State Bap- 
tist paper, is very encouraging this year. The circulation of the 
paper during the past year has shown a good increase. The 
present circlation is around Foorty-five thousand, which means 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



25 



a net gain for the past twelve months of approximately seven 
thousand. 

The RECORDER has three subscription plans: $2.00 a year 
for individual subscriptions; $1 .50 a year in clubs — a minimum 
of at least three subscriptions is required for every church re- 
porting a hundred members, and five subscriptions for every 
church reporting more than a hundred members; $1.20 a year 
for the Every Family Plan — one subscription for each resident 
church family is required. We hope that pastors, Superintend- 
ents, Deacons, Training Union leaders and W. M. U. Leaders 
will do what they can to encourage a good club in every chur- 
ch; or better still, to persuade the churches to enarguate the 
Every Family Plan. At the present time there are 302 churches 
which have the Recorder in every resident family. There are 
876 churches which have the Recorder clubs. 

All of this denominational literature helps to meet the 
need of our churches and denomination in informing training, 
and enlisting our membership in the whole program of the 
church and the Kingdom of God, and should have our every 
encouragement and support. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Fletcher Ford 

23. The American Bible Society was discussed by Joe F. 
Roach. We were urged to either put the cause of the Society 
in our church Budgets or to have a free will offering in our 
churches each year. 

24. The report on the Baptist Hospital was turned in by 
T. J. Faulk, W. K. McGee of the hospital staff spoke on the 
report and gave glimpses of what is going on at our institution. 

BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

The underlying purpose of the Baptist Hospital has always 
been medical care for the poor. Since the day it received its 
first patient it has offered a high type of hospital care on a 
statewide basis. Its caliber of service was enhanced many times 
over when the Wake Forest Medical School became a four- 
year school in 1941 and was located adjacent to the Baptist 
Hospital. When the Baptist Hospital became a teaching hos- 
pital, its purpose became twofold — teaching and healing, the 
twin endeavors of Christ. 

Because the hospital had access to the doctors who were 
in the medical school, and because it had tremendous invest- 
ments in laboratory and X-ray facilities, it was decid.ed to en- 
large the hospital's service beyond the limited number of in- 



26 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



patients it could take hy the creation of a diagnostic center 
for patients from all over the state who could not he admitted 
to the hospital. These clinics are operated for patients unable 
to pay a specialist's fee, and the only charge made is a $5.00 
registration charge plus reduced charges for special X-ray and 
laboratory work. During 1946 the hospital gave exhaustive 
diagnostic examinations to more than eighteen thousand pat- 
ients from all over North Carolina. 

The Baptist Hospital operates a fully approved school of 
nursing and at the present time has an enrollment of about 
120 young ladies receiving professional training under Chris- 
tian auspices. 

Each year the hospital is able to admit approximately 
Eight thousand patients as in-patients, or bed patients. In ad- 
dition, the present out-patients facilities accommodate about 
Twenty thousand who are given complete diagnostic exami- 
nations and are not admitted as bed patients. Also, the medical 
school operates a private clinic for those patients able to pay 
a physician and this clinic examines approximately Twenty 
thousand patients each year. This makes a grand total of 
Forty-eght thousand people who depend each year upon the 
Baptist Hospital for relief from pain. 

Of the Eight thousand patients admitted as bed patients 
each year, slightly over Four thousand of these are service 
patients who pay no doctor's fee, and who pay reduced hospital 
expenses. During 1946 many of these service patients paid ab- 
solutely nothing toward their hospital bill. It is toward the 
expense of these patients that the money given on Mother's 
Day each year is used. The cost of free service during 1946 was 
$159,115.47. This made the Baptist Hospital the largest dis- 
penser of charity medical care of any denominationally con- 
trolled hospital in the south during 1946. 

The past twelve months have been the most crowded year 
our Baptist Hospital has ever known. Its ministry has gone 
to more people than ever before, but the challenge is before 
us as we look to a much larger and more modern plant on the 
Gray estate in Winston-Salem where this ministery of healing 
in the name of Christ can be multiplied.

26. Motion was made that a committee be appointed in 
this connection. J. B. Dailey, Earl J. Rogers and Hugh Lee

27. The report on Christian Education was presented by 
Jarvis Teague. The Vice-Moderator, Herbert Jenkins, was

program for Wake Forest College. The Quotas for the various 
churches were distributed. Horace Easom, Shelby, spoke for 
the vastness of the program, the opportunity, the vision, the 
mechanics and the purpose of it. Messengers voted unanimou- 
sly in favor of it. 

REPORT ON CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

In the West Chowan Association, Christian Education 
made rapid progress in 1947. Sunday School campaigns were 
put on in most churches, increasing attendance and effective- 
ness. Over ninty percent of our churches conducted Vacation 
Bible Schools; many for the first time. 

In North Carolina Christian Education is in a formative 
state, hinging around the moving of Weke Forest College to 
Winston Salem, and the relation of this move to other colleges. 
This move and its hearing on related colleges should challenge 
all North Carolina Baptist to serious thinking, serious pray- 
ing, and serious giving. 

The college system for Baptist in our state is composed of 
seven colleges: Wake Forest, Meredith, Mars Hill, Campbell, 
Garner and Webb, Wingate and Chowan. At the present time 
Chowan with a beautiful and useful history of one hundred 
years is closed. Throughout the long history of these seven 
colleges a Christian Spirit has prevented. During this time 
they have operated on a financial plain which made higher 
education available to the poor and medium brackets of society. 

This long and useful^ history places a tioo fold obligation 
upon all our Baptist Colleges: (1) to maintain a christian 
spirit (2) to operate on a financial level that will permit the 
poor and the average Baptist boy and girl to go to college. 

In The Southern Baptist Convention we have three great 
Seminaries and plans are being made for a fourth. All the 
Seminaries are filled to capacity and hundreds are on waiting 
lists. Remarkable expansion has been made in all departments 
especially in Christian Education, Church Administration, 
Music and Missions

Let us as Baptist, always remember that Christian Educa- 
tion is part of the Great Commission. ''Go Ye Therefore, and 
teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, 
and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to ob- 
serve all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo 
I am with you always, even unto the end of the world."

29. The afternoon session opened by singing, "I Need Thee 
Every Hour" and prayer by Dr. C. G. Powell. 

30. The congregation was favored by the singing of, "My

ing remarks concerning christian education in general and 
Campbell College in particular. 

32. The Sunday School report was presented by the Asso- 
ciational Superintendent, E. J. Rogers, who discussed some of 
the recommendations contained in the report. 

REPORT OF SUNDAY SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT 

Realizing that the Sunday School is probably the most 
important organization in any Church, and being fully aware 
of the^ great need in our day for the teaching of God's Word 
which the Sunday School offers; it behooves our Churches to 
place a new emphasis on the efficiency of our Sunday Schools. 
Toward the achievement of that efficiency, may I make a few 
common sence suggestions: 

1. That every Church in the Association put forth an 
honest effort to have a representation in the two important 
Sunday School meetings of the Association during the year, 
the Planning meeting in January, and the S. S. Convention 
in June, 

2. That every church in the Association cooperate in the 
''Team Work" plan in February to get the 1Q48 Program before 
all of us. 

3. That every Church sponsor a Vacation Bible School 
during the summer of 1948. 



West Chowan Baptist Association 29 



4. That we give careful consideration to the possibility 
of putting on an Association-wide S. S. Enlargement Campaign 
during 1948. And that whether the Campaign is entered into 
or not on an Association<vide scale, that every church put 
on at least one period of officer and teacher training and a 
Religious Survey of Church community during the year. 

5. That we re-study the Standard Of Excellency, and 
that every Sunday School in the Association set as its goal 
nothing less than reaching the Standard, not that we may 
boast, but that God may be glorified. 

6. That our Sunday Schools put forth a special effort 
to enroll and enlist every resident church member. 

Respectfully submitted, 

E. J. Rogers, Superintendent 

33. J. L. Jones and Horace Easom then favored us with a 
duet, "Face to Face". 

34. The report on Civic Righteousness was brought in and 
earnestly and abely discussed by W. H. Hollowell. Among the 
evils discussed was Liquor, Gambling and Sabbath Desec- 
ration. 

REPORT OF CIVIC RIGHTEOUSNESS 

Upon a re-examination of the term Civic Righteousness 
I am of definite opinion that the average so called Christian 
of today has lost sight of the meaning of these two simple 
words which together define what should be the attitude of 
the Christian in regard to those things that at least retard the 
program of our Lord both at home and abroad. Involved in the 
term Civic Righteousness is what should be the Christian's 
attitude toward many things that are now common in prac- 
tice among us. Among them are: 

(1 ) The liquor traffic inclusive of wine and beer as well 
as hard liquors. 

(2) The common practice of Sabbath desecration. 

(3) The widely popular practice of gambling — Around 
the card table in the home. — At the soda fountain or at the 
cold drink counter. 

(4) The apparently innocent games so often seen at fairs 
or carnivals or even in the district school room at certain 
money making functions such as selling and buying chances 
or playing such games as Bingo for a prize etc. 



30 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



(5) Then on out into the larger fields of gambling which 
are common to the more degenerated people. 

Involved in the term Civic Righteousness is general con- 
duct, language used and one's dealing with his fellow man. 

I most earnestly recommend that we re-study the term 
Civic Righteousness and then do something about it in our 
practice that we as Christians may bring honor to our Lord 
and regain our influence over the lost about us and else where. 

Respectfully submitted, 
W. H. Hollowell 

35. Walter Evans brought in and effectively discussed the 
report on Ministers Retirement. 

REPORT OF THE MINISTER'S RETIREMENT PLAN 

The Southern Baptist Convention has made much pro- 
gress of which we are justly proud, but at no time during its 
past history has it developed an idea more worthy of consider- 
ation than the Minister's Retirement Plan. 

The churches, the ministers, and the convention all work- 
ing together can provide for the security and comforts of aged 
ministers and others who have devoted their lives to the service 
of God and mankind. Surely, we, as Christians, should be proud 
of the opportunity we have in taking a part that brings happi- 
ness to people who richly deserve it and are so appreciative. 

We have grateful expressions from three men who have 
been pastors in this Association. 

The first states: ''As a disabled minister I cannot find 
words to express my appreciation for the benefits I am now 
receiving from the Minister's Retirement Plan in North Caro- 
lina. When I suddenly found myself a disabled pastor, it was a 
consolation to know I had a membership from the very start 
in the Ministr's Retirement Plan of North Carolina. It gives 
us a modest living without depending on anyone for help." 
These expressions came from Reverand H. G. Bryant, who was 
at one time pastor at Meherrin. 

The second says: ''The establishment of the Minister's and 
Employee's Retirement Fund was and is a veritable Godsend 
to me and doubtless to many others in a like situation. With 
forty-eight years of the best service I knew how to give behind 
me, with the shadow of age creeping on, with our little sav- 
ings swallowed up in the recent depression, what was there 
to look forward to but utter dependency? Thank God! we can 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



31 



now rest in peace at night and look every man in the face in 
the daytime. In addition to this we can answer to our beloved 
calling with joy unknown before." These expressions came 
from Reverend William R. Burrell who was at one time pas- 
tor at Murfreesboro. 

The third reads: ''Permit me to say a word of praise for 
the Minister's Retirement Plan. My breakdown in health came 
like a thunderclap out of a clear blue sky. I was examined by 
my physician on Friday and he said I was O. K. On the Thurs- 
day of the next week my break came. I was nonplussed. I had 
made plans to preach on for many years. In my dilemma I 
thanked God for the Minister's Retirement Plan. Our church 
and convention challenge every pastor and church to be pre- 
pared for such a day as mine was and is" These expressions 
came from Reverend Julius W. Whitley, who was at one time 
pastor at Meherrin. 

The widow's supplementry plan is a plan by which a mar- 
ried man can provide some income for his wife in event of his 
death before attaining sixty-five. Pastors of churches pay IV2 
percent ( maximum Four thousand dollars ) of their annual sal- 
ary prior to age sixty. After sixty but prior to sixty-four mem- 
bers pay 2 percent. This plan also has great promise. 

There are fifteen pastors in, the West Chowan Association 
who are members of the plan. We have forty-five members 
and ten widows in North Carolina who receive a check each 
month from the relief and annuity board. There are between 
five and six hundred members at this time. We have about 
two hundred and fiftey members of the widow's supplement 
to the plan. 

Brother Pastor, Help provide for your own security! 

Brother Deacon, Is your church in the plan, if not, then get 
in the line of march! 

Respectfully submitted, 
Walter H. Evans 

36. The Historian's Report was presented by J. E. Lanier. 
HISTORIAN'S REPORT

Your committee on credentials are happy to report: 

1st — That of the few conditions that have somewhat tro- 
bled the waters, most of them have been aimably taken care of. 

2nd — We find no church desiring to withdraw nor none 
applying for membership into the Association. 

3rd. — We recognize the absolute autonomy of every in- 
dividual christian and of every church in our Association and 
yet we deplore the fact that any church within our bounds 
cannot see the way clear to a full and complete cooperation 
with us in the Master's work. 

Submitted by the committee,

IN MEMORIAM 

We think it Christian to take time out of our Association 
Program to pay our tribute of love for those of our fellow- 
comrades who have through the years worked with us in the 



34 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



advancement of our Lord's Kingdom upon the earth, and have 
now ceased from their labors, stacked their arms, furled their 
colors and joined the church triumphant. 

During our Associational year God in his unearing wis- 
dom has called from our fellowship one hundred and twenty- 
seven of our co-laborers, of this number there were seven 
faithful deacons. We are happy in our belief that they fought 
a good fight, that they ran well their race, that they kept the 
faith and that they have received the crown, the Lord had 
awaiting them. We miss their familiar faces, their warm hand- 
shake and their inspiring uplifting fellowship. As we pause 
to pay this tribute of love and honor we are reminded of the 
words of the apostle Paul. "Wherefore seeing we also are com- 
passed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay 
aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, 
and let us run with patience the race that is set before us/' 

Not sweeping up together, in a whirlwind or in cloud. 

In the hush of summer weather, or when storms are 
thundering loud. 

But one by one we go 

In the sweetness none may know. 

Not pressing through the portals of the Celestial Town, 
An army of flesh immortals, by the Lord of battles won 

But one by one we come, 

To the Gate of the heavenly home. 

Respectfully submitted, 
A. P. Mustian

How the West Chowan Association Came To Be 

1. The Kehukee Association was organized November 9, 1769, (ac- 
cording to Paschall). Sand Run (then called Bertie) was the only West 
Chowan church in the organization. 

2. In 1806, the Kehukee was divided at the Roanoke River and 
north of the River in North Carolina became the Chowan Association. 
The following West Chowan churches were in the new organization: 
Ahoskie, Sandy Run, Bethlehem, Cashie, Meherrin, Boss (then called 
Ross' Meeting House), Colerain (then called Wiccacon). 

3. In 1883 the Chowan Association divided at the Chov/an River 
and the three counties between the Chowan and Roanoke Rivers be- 
came the West Chowan Association. Twenty-eight churches formed 
the Association. 

The Kehukee was probably the fourth Baptist Association in Ameri- 
ca. The Philadelphia formed in 1707 was first; the Charleston (S. C.) 
in 1751; the Sandy Creek (around Sanford) in 1758; and the Kehukee 
in 1769.
